Who is Aung San Suu Kyi?

comments         Published     Updated

Fresh jasmine in her hair,

Frail fingers, behind bars;

A smile, wistful but fair,

Tired eyes, and heavy heart.

Woman, feared by men in green,

Daughter, Hope, of people unfree;

Mother, Wife, with grief unseen,

But we’re still silent, holding the key.

Burma’s forgotten, faraway,

‘Who’s this Suu Kyi?’ you ask;

Look in the mirror, friend, then say,

Isn’t Daw Suu Kyi really us?

May God bless her, the people of Burma and all who yearn for Freedom, Justice and Democracy.

Keep Malaysiakini independent!

Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.

Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.

Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.

Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
