Ladies of Burma | The Coat
I present two video clips with two Burmese ladies who have rendered outstanding services to the cause of liberty and democracy: the Burmese painter Chaw Ei Thein and the Nobel Peace Prize winner, recently voted parliamentarian and chairman of the National League for Democracy, Aung San Suu Kyi (affectionately called "The Lady").
Bloomberg Businessweek released extracts from an exclusive conversation with the exiles of Burma on September 18. Aung San Suu Kyi addressed Queens College in New York City on September 22 (Chaw Ei Thein was part of the Welcome Committee). It was one of many stations The Lady made on a trip through the United States.
Suu Kyi talks about the responsibilities of those who live in democracy in the following film, which comes with kind permission from the DvoD. It is your own duty in a democracy such as the United States.
