Around 400 people gathered at Hong Lim Park on Sunday for a vigil in support of Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyu. Ms Suu Kyi has been under house arrest for 13 of the past 19 years, mostly under tight security and in virtual isolation.
Candle light vigils were held simultaneously in Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines and Malaysia on Sunday. The peaceful demonstration at Speakers Corner began at around 5.30pm and ended slightly after 7pm. The crowd consisted of mostly young Singaporeans and Burmese nationals, many dressed in yellow t-shirts, with posters and banners of Ms Suu Kyi.
