Dear Albert Gore,
Congratulations on being awarded such a high honor!
Can you now join President Carter and call on all other Nobel Peace Prize laureates to gather together in Burma and demand en mass to meet with imprisoned fellow laureate Aung San Suu Kyi?
You must be prepared to remain in Burma until she is released from house arrest, the monks are released from prison, the people are free to assemble and Democracy is restored.
This is a situation which surely requires direct and timely action from the Nobel Peace Prize community.
We must be able to respond faster than this or we will forever be on the defensive against such oppression.
You guys have the world watching and need to strike now.
I know that you must have each others telephone numbers.
Aside from her years under house arrest and in prison, as a fellow Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi is under intense pressure by the brutal junta to meet with them under their conditions, and therefore legitimize their massacre of the people and monks. The junta continues to spin and deny this heinous assault on human rights with rallies, propaganda and expensive PR.
What is the point of having the Peace Prize if you cannot come to the aid of a fellow laureate who is imprisoned simply for being democratically elected?
If this illegal junta can get away with this then why can't any other regime imprison any one of you any time, any place they want for however long they want, as evidenced with Aung San Suu Kyi?
If you don't believe me then go and ask Than Shwe and the other criminals raping the land and people of Burma.
Demand a meeting with your fellow Nobel Laureate. Now.
Please gather together all of you Nobel Laureates and go to Burma and support Aung San Suu Kyi and Democracy in Burma.
You must demand justice for the people there, before we have to demand justice for all of you over here.
I don't mean to sound flippant but if you guy's can't stand up to this now, then we are all truly lost!
Please go to Mandalay. Find the Nobel Lady.
And knock on her front gate!
Thank you again for your hard work,
