The 19th June 2009: 64 Birthday of Nobel Peace Laureate and Burmese Democracy Leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi

On the occasion of 64 Birthday of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, 19 June 2009, around 35 Burmese activists and refugees celebrated in front of Burmese Embassy in New Delhi. A petition signed by 27,400 from different walks of lives of people of India was submitted to the Prime Minister of India, External Affairs Minister and Burmese Embassy in New Delhi.

Burmese pro- democracy groups in a non- violence and peaceful manner celebrated the 64 Birthday of Aung San Suu Kyi on the main gate of Myanmar Embassy by singing birthday songs, lighting 64 Birthday Cakes and holding colorful placards which read “Happy Birthday” “Long live Daw Aung San Suu Kyi” and Free Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma”.


On 15 June 2009, former political prisoners and human rights activists have submitted 670000 signatures to United Nation’s General Secretary Ban Ki-Moon to make it as United Nation’s priority to secure the release of all Burma's political prisoners, including Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, as the crucial primary step towards democracy in the country.

FBPPN Campaign India submitted the 27, 400 signatures which were collected from the people of India to the Prime Minister of India and External Affairs Minister by seeking sincere support and help.

The number of political prisoners in Burma has increased from 1150 to 2137 by July 2007.

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was put under house arrest on 20 July 1989. She was offered freedom if she would leave the country, but she refused. She spent 13 years and 235 days" in detention during the past 20 years for her beliefs and commitments for restoration of peace, justice, human rights and democracy in Burma.

Since 14 May 2009, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has been moved to the notorious Insein Prison from her house to face trial on trumped- up charges relating to the junta's own failure to protect her security, and she could face up to five years in jail if convicted.
