Why: June 19, 2008, is the 63rd birthday of Aung San Suu Kyi, the democratically
elected leader of Burma. Burma's ruling military junta currently has her under house
arrest, and cut off from the outside world. With these birthday wishes, we seek to
show our solidarity with those promoting democracy and human rights in Burma.

Brief background: Aung San Suu Kyi is a key figure in the Burmese democracy movement, and
daughter of Burma's founding father, Aung San, who was assassinated by political opponents in
1947. Aung San Suu Kyi has been under house arrest in Burma for most of the past 14 years.

Various military dictatorships have ruled Burma since a military coup in 1962; a military junta has
ruled Burma since 1988. The junta refused to hand over power to opposition leader Aung San Suu
Kyi after her party - the National League for Democracy (NLD) - won over 80% of the seats in a 1990
parliamentary election. In 1991, Aung San Suu Kyi received the Nobel Peace Prize for her
commitment to peaceful change.

Environmental and human rights abuses under the junta are widespread and well documented.
Examples include rape, torture, burning of entire minority-inhabited villages, use of forced labor for
infrastructure projects - such as tourism facilities - and, most recently, in blocking relief efforts for an
estimated 2.5 million cyclone victims.
