Strange Victories

On November 13th 2010, Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house arrest in Rangoon. Suu Kyi, whose name translates as 'A Bright Collection of Strange Victories', had spent almost 15 of the last 21 years under house arrest.

'We would like a non-violent, peaceful revolution' she told the BBC in one of her first interviews after being released. 'By revolution I mean a great change for the better. For me, "revolution" simply means radical change.'
