"I will bring forth my nonviolent revolution"

interview to Aung San Suu Kyi

The leader of the Burmese opposition party and Nobel Prize Laureate is free again after 7 years spent under arrest.

In an interview to the BBC she reflected on the past elections: "We heard of improprieties and frauds. We are investigating and we will publish the results soon. Moreover I think it is impossible to strike out the polls of 1990".

The Nobel laureate wants to work for a peaceful revolution: : "I don't want anybody to be harmed, for absolutely any reason. Too much blood was shed. What we want is democracy and respect of human rights".

On 23 November the leader reunited with her son after 10 years.
