The Reith Lectures 2011 Aung San Suu Kyi on Liberty

I've just started listening to this . 

It's wonderful and something very worthwhile  to explore for this week : BBC Radio 4 Link is here

The inspirational Burmese pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, explores what freedom means in the first of the BBC 2011 Reith Lecture series, 'Securing Freedom'.

Reflecting on her own experience under house arrest in Burma, she explores the universal human aspiration to be free and the spirit which drives people to dissent. 

She also comments on the Arab Spring, comparing the event that triggered last December's revolution in Tunisia with the death of a student during a protest in Burma in 1988.

If you can't manage to listen to it live :
The transcripts of Aung San Suu Kyi's Reith Lectures will be available immediately after the first broadcast on Radio 4 on June 28 and July 5.
