Aung San Suu Kyi speaks and receives awards yesterday and today

Jump to last reply

Yesterday afternoon in D.C. "The Lady" spoke to a gathering of Asia Society members and others at which she was given an award for her values and opposition to the generals over all these years. She was quite amazing. For the most part, she seemed to be speaking w/o notes and her candor was startling. The event is available on C-Span.

This afternoon at 3:00 EDT she'll be addressing Congress, where she'll also be receiving an
award--the Freedom Award, I believe. It'll be available live on C-Span--and on tape thereafter.

She will be in NYC this weekend. Not sure where else her visit takes her.

What an extraordinary woman.
