    Bono to present award to Suu Kyi

    BBC

    Bono will present Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi with Amnesty International's highest honour when she visits Dublin next month.

    Suu Kyi will visit Dublin on June 18, a day after collecting her Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway.

    She was awarded the Nobel in 1991, and Amnesty's Ambassador of Conscience award in 2009.

    She was unable to claim either award until now because she was under house arrest for 15 of the past 24 years....

    Bob Geldof also will be involved in the concert. Geldof praised Suu Kyi as a "heroine of dignity, integrity, courage and steely moral vigour (who) lost her freedom and her family in order to gain a nation. Ireland is ennobled by her visit."

    I can't reconcile the idea in my head of someone as internationally and historically important as Aung San Suu Kyi having to suffer the indignity of receiving an award from the creature commonly referred to as Bono.

    I didn't know Burma had things like house arrest and elections.

    Not everyone in Amnesty will like him but he's an important figurehead, sold a lot of records calling for no war =p

    It`s the Pop era look. No need for gel. The sun glasses are hard to keep in place, though.
