Protest trial of Aung San Suu Kyi!

The elected president of Myanmar (Burma) Ms Aung San Suu Kyi has been held in house arrest by the military junta that annulled the results of the 1990 election for 13 years. This week she was taken from her home to the notorious Insein prison where she will be tried on May 18 for violating the conditions of her house arrest. An American swam a lake to her home and tried to enter and was arrested after she sent him away the next day. It is obvious that this trial is an excuse to extend her incarceration which is due to expire at the end of May. Ms Suu Kyi's health is poor and she is unlikely to survive a long imprisonment in Insein.
Please, dear friends, take action! I append a link to a site from which you can petition the UN. I also request that you write to your Foreign Ministers and call upon them to make it clear to the government of Myanmar that this action is unacceptable.
