U Win Tin, former journalist, writer and founding member of the NLD, was arrested in 1989 because of his political activities and close association to Aung San Suu Kyi. He was jailed for 19 years in Insein prison, mostly in solitary confinement. His sentence was increased whilst in prison when he secretly published anti-government propaganda. He was released in 2008 and despite his age, he still works as a CEC member of the NLD in Rangoon, working endlessly for the release of political prisoners. He wears a blue shirt every day (like the prison uniform) to remind people of those still incarcerated.
Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma's democracy icon and leader of the NLD, has spent more than 15 years under house arrest in her lakeside home and Insein prison. She was released from her latest sentence in November 2010 and continues to work tirelessly to achieve democracy and national reconciliation in Burma in spite of constant threats and oppression from the authorities.
