Walk On

26 June 2009
Walk On
In 2009 U2 fans at every show will be reminding the world of the plight of Burma's democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi.  A Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi has been described as Asia's Nelson Mandela.  Her party, the National League for Democracy, won elections in 1990 but the ruling military junta refused to hand over power.  Since that day most of her time has been spent under house arrest.

U2 believe the world must not be allowed to forget Aung San Suu Kyi and on the 360 Tour fans are being invited to wear the mask when the band play Walk On, which was written for her.

Download your own Mask here - you will need adobe acrobat to print the file.

Print it off.
Cut it out.
Attach some elastic or string to the sides.
Try it on for size.
(If you're really clever print it on card or laminate it
Or tape on a little handle to hold it in front of your face.
Wear it to work or college. Wear it on the bus or the train. Wear it in the pub or at the shops.
And don't forget.
Bring it to a U2 show.

Put it on with thousands of others when the band strike up the opening bars of Walk On. Wear it to to show the world that you have not forgotten. 'Please use your liberty to promote ours,' says Aung San Suu Kyi.
Use your liberty to promote hers. And the liberty of the people of Burma.

WEAR THE MASK.
