When Moral Courage Makes a Difference

WATCH FOR THE March 2, 2012 edition of the National Post and my piece on the Burmese democracy activist, Aung Sun Suu Kyi. Tomorrow marks the 50th anniversary of the March 1962 coup, formalizing the country’s military dictatorship. On April 1, Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy will contest 48 by-election seats in a vote which could advance the party’s standing. On Wednesday, Suu Kyi told the world “Don’t be too optimistic. Don’t be too pessimistic. Try to see things as they are and try to keep contact with the ordinary people of Burma.”
