Aung San Suu Kyi Is Allowed to Make a Campaign Speech

Today, as reported by the BBC, Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was allowed to deliver a campaign message and even to criticize her country’s political system. A clear sign that things are changing positively in Burma, she was able to speak for 15 minutes on national television and radio as part of a new government provision that gives parties in the 1 April by-elections the right to outline their political themes and aspirations for the country. Forty-eight parliamentary seats are being contested in the upcoming election. Hopefully her National League for Democracy (NLD) party will win many.

Dramatic changes are occurring in Burma. That’s good news!
