Arrest Yourself for Aung San Suu Kyi
Women of the US Senate are raising their voices for Aung San Suu Kyi, activist and leader of the National League for Democracy in Burma, advocate of nonviolent resistance, and recipient of the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize.
The US Campaign for Burma organizes the "Arrest Yourself" campaign annually as a show of solidarity with Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been locked up by Burma's military regime for 13 of the last 19 years.
In a recent letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, members of the US Senate Women's Caucus on Burma urged the Secretary General to call on Burma's military regime to release Aung San Suu Kyi immediately and unconditionally.
Join these women in raising your voice for Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma by participating in Arrest Yourself 2009. When you sign up to "Arrest Yourself" you are agreeing to stay home for 24 hours under self-imposed house arrest one day between now and Aung San Suu Kyi's 64th birthday on June 19th. During your house arrest, invite friends and family to your home for a few hours to educate them about Aung San Suu Kyi and the situation in Burma. All the materials you need will be sent to you once you register with the US Campaign for Burma.
