If you follow my twitter stream or visit my page (@basswulf) you will see that I have temporarily changed my avatar there. Doing so marks two things:
- The 64th birthday of Aung San Suu Kyi. She is a campaigner for human rights and democracy in Burma who won their 1990 general election by a large majority but who has been kept under house arrest by the military junta. Recently she has been moved to the notorious Insein Prison for breaking the terms of her house arrest after an intruder swam out to the island she had been confined to.
- The green colour shows that I am following events in Iran where a significant number of citizens are protesting that their recent election was rigged
