Burma, along with Laos and Cambodia, might be working for Beijing as spies within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), according to a US cable leak attributed to Singapore’s Minister Mentor, Lee Kuan Yew.

We celebrate the release of our leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi from unlawful house arrest, and call on the military regime to guarantee her safety and grant her full freedom of movement, expression, association and assembly.
Join us at Speakers’ Corner on Saturday, 30 October 2010 from 4pm to 4.45pm to say “NO TO BURMA’S SHAM ELECTIONS” .
Come for a photo session and get your voice heard with a large placard that reads “No to Burma’s Sham Elections”. As a gesture of solidarity, do wear a red shirt for the event.
The Burmese Junta is determined to push through with elections on 7 November 2010. This is being done despite electoral laws that clearly do not allow a free and fair election.
Long-time dissident and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi remains under house arrest while many political prisoners are still held in prison. Meanwhile, the Burmese people are living in constant fear of torture and harassment under the military regime.
Join us as we stand in unity with the people of Burma. Let us come together to say “No” to the planned election – a sham election that does not represent the true voice of the people.
No to Burma’s Sham Election!
From Burma Partnership
Twenty-two years ago on 8 August, Burma’s army brutally massacred as many as 3,000 peaceful pro-democracy demonstrators marching against increasing poverty and oppression, and calling for an end to the military dictatorship. The serious human rights violations and economic mismanagement that led to the national uprising in 1988 have continued to worsen under the current regime.
It is especially significant for people in Singapore to continue to advocate on behalf of her and the Burmese people, because the government of Singapore would rather support and prop up the military regime.
On this day, we reaffirm our commitment to the noble struggle for peace, human rights and democracy in Burma. It is our sincere hope that Daw Aung San Suu Kyii will one day be free to take her rightful place as the leader of Burma.
Happy Birthday Aung San Suu Kyi.
