The party of Myanmar's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has declared that it will take part in 2015 parliamentary elections even if the country's constitution barring her from running for president is not amended. Nyan Win, spokesman for National League for Democracy (NLD), said at a news conference on Saturday that the party would contest the polls, which Suu Kyi had said cannot be fair unless the constitution is changed. Article 59 of the constitution says anyone whose spouse or children owes allegiance to a foreign power cannot become president or vice president. Suu Kyi was married to the late British scholar Michael Aris, and her two sons are foreign citizens. Myanmar's parliament formed a Constitution Review Committee in July to recommend changes to the constitution before the 2015 elections. The NLD decided at a meeting on Saturday to send suggestions on changing 168 points from 14 chapters of the constitution, including the article that disqualifies Suu Kyi from becoming president, said Win M ...

Portrait of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi since 1988 leader of the nonviolent movement for human rights and democracy in Burma. The documentary Lady of No Fear focuses on her personal life and the immense sacrifices herself imposes its goal.

Ever since she returned to Burma in 1988, she has been a champion for freedom and democracy so desperately sought after by the Burmese people. In the western world, Aung San Suu Kyi symbolizes peace and reconciliation and has received numerous awards for her peace efforts. But who exactly is this woman whose courage is recognized and admired the world over? And why does she prefer House Arrest and captivity in Burma over a quiet life with her children in England?

Suu Kyi urges intl community to make Myanmar change charter ADRIAN CROFT, Reuters October 22, 2013 1:56 am LUXEMBOURG - Nobel Peace prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi urged Europe and the United States on Monday to press Myanmar to reform what she said was an undemocratic constitution, partly because it effectively bars women from running for president. The Myanmar (Burmese) opposition leader, in Luxembourg to meet European Union foreign ministers, said the constitution stipulates that the president must have military experience, thus excluding women. It also prevents Suu Kyi, 68, from running for the presidency in 2015 because it bans anyone who has children who are foreign citizens. Suu Kyi and her husband, the late British academic Michael Aris, had two children who are British. The EU has already called for amendments to Myanmar's constitution, but Suu Kyi said it must be more vocal "because unless this constitution is amended ... we will have to take it that the present administration is not interested i ...

"She was released from her prison that was her home into the prison that was her country."-Michael Aris on his wife Aung San Suu Kyi.
The Lady (2011) reviewed by Frankie H. Fitch The Lady tells the story of Aung San Suu Kyi (Michelle Yeoh) as she becomes the core of Burma’s democracy movement, and her relationship with her husband, writer Michael Aris (David Thewlis). The couple has two children, Kim and Alexander (Jonathan Raggett and Jonathan Woodhouse) who are being educated in England, where they were born. When Suu Kyi goes home to Burma to see about her mother; the government holds onto her and she cannot leave the country to visit her family in England. Suu Kyi is a symbol of Democracy for Burma, because of who her father was. He was the president when a military coup killed him and his entire cabinet to gain power and to oppress the country. Initially she has been quiet and not in the forefront of the fight. When her family is allowed to visit for a short time; she misses them enough to show them, but she cannot leave Burma. If she leaves she will never be able to reenter the country for any reason. Soon the military ha ...
Saw a great movie called "The Lady"(2011) about Aung San Suu Kyi. It has the actress who did the older geisha from the movie "Memoirs of the Geisha" (Michelle Yeoh) & David Thewlis from "War Horse" acting as Michael Aris, Aung San Suu Kyi's husband. Great acting by both of them founded by a great script. I compare this to the "Iron Lady" which I was really disappointed.It was a great acting by Meryl Streep as always accompany by a great actor - Jim Broadbent who plays Denis Thatcher, but the script was awful. Didn't really deal with her political side to the depth you expect to with a political icon such as Margaret Thatcher. I know the director was aiming for an angle more of a human perspective of Thatcher. But, you talking Margaret Thatcher for pete's sake? Come on don't wimp out. well that was i think, if Phyllida Lloyd (director) had the guts to tackle her political side it would of got a better review. It's only 6.4 on Imdb come on with a subject as Thatcher & an actress like Meryl Streep. That wa . ...
