The Voice of Hope
Aung San Suu Kyi has suffered constant harassment and abuse from the Burmese authorities, long separation from her family and six years of house arrest. In these 12 interviews, she talks about her passion for justice and the sacrifices she has had to make. One of the very few people she has trusted enough to take her message to the wider world is Alan Clements.The Voice of Hope is the result of the secret and dangerous meetings they had over several years, and offers unquestionably the most wide-ranging collection of her views on the political situation inside Burma, her non-violent approach to democracy and human rights, her Buddhist beliefs, her family, and how she keeps a sense of meaning and purpose under the most appalling conditions. Brand new material includes an inspiring discussion with U-Gambira, the leader of the All-Burma Monks Alliance, conducted after the 2007 uprising (he has since 'disappeared'). There is also an updated Chronology of Events of recent Burmese history, a new introduction and a new list of Burma-related websites.
