U2's latest single Walk On, dedicated to Burmese peace campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi, comes days ahead of the tenth anniversary of her Nobel Peace Prize.

If you have seen the video for the song you will notice Bono wearing an image of Aung San Suu Kyi on his t-shirt - and that she speaks to camera at the end of the video.

Worldview Rights, the National Democratic Institute for Foreign Affairs and the Nobel Institute are organizing a major focus on Aung San Suu Kyi on the 8th of December, saluting her 10th anniversary as a Nobel Peace Laureate.

Supporters worldwide are Invited to visit the official web site of The Nobel Peace Laureate Campaign for Aung San Suu Kyi and the People of Burma - - which is linking citizens who would like to support this extraordinary champion of human rights and democracy on the 10th anniversary of her Nobel Prize.

The Nobel Institute in Oslo will host a celebration in front of the Norwegian Parliament building in Oslo when every living Nobel Peace Laureate has been invited to attend as part of the centennial celebration of the Nobel Peace Prize. Supporters across the world will join the celebration online, a demonstration of international support for Aung San Suu Kyi and a free and democratic Burma.

Burma, a country of 47 million, is ruled by fear... and a military machine of 400,000 soldiers which denies basic rights. When Aung San Suu Kyi's Party, the National League for Democracy (NLD) won 82% of the seats in the 1990 election, the people of Burma overwhelmingly rejected military rule yet the military refuses to transfer power to democratically elected leaders. Aung San Suu Kyi has spent years under house arrest, her movements severely restricted.

Campaigners believe that this focus on the anniversary of her Nobel prize, comes at a critical time - when international attention and support could make a critical difference.
