Send 64 words for Aung San Suu Kyi

On June 19, Aung San Suu Kyi, the Burmese democracy leader, is marking her 64th birthday in the notorious Insein prison in Burma. The regime has kept Suu Kyi under detention, either under house arrest or in jail, for over 13 years. Show your support to her and democracy activists in Burma by writing 64 words as a birthday message for her. Drew Barrymore, David Beckham, Sandra Bullock, Daniel Craig and Yoko Ono have joined hundreds of others who have written 64 words for Suu Kyi. Julia Roberts wrote:

Add your voice to those calling for the freedom of Suu Kyi.
