Burma’s opposition leader Aung Sun Suu Kyi says she’s willing to work with the ruling military junta towards her goal of democracy, after her release from house arrest on the weekend. She’s spent fifteen of the past twenty-one years under house arrest, and it’s been seven and a half years since the last time she was released. Thousands of supporters have been celebrating, but campaigners in Australia say this doesn’t mean Burma is any closer to democracy. They say more international pressure on its military junta is needed.
