Aung San Suu Kyi

Archbishop Desmond Tutu said of Suu Kyi, "Like Gandhi before her, she has steadfastly rejected the use of violence in the struggle to free Burma from the clutches of its hardmen. And yet, even without tanks, guns or an army behind her - and from the solitude of house arrest - she continues to pose a threat to the scared military men of Burma."
