Tri-City Action for Peace presents ‘The Lady’

SAGINAW – Tri-City Action for Peace will present the film “The Lady,” starring Michelle Yeoh on Monday, Aug. 12 at 6 p.m. at Zauel Memorial Library.

Born to the Burmese general, Aung San, who led Burma to independence and was then murdered by armed men in uniform, Aung San Suu Kyi was two years old when her father was murdered. She was educated in England but returned to Burma in 1988 when her mother became ill and continued her father’s fight for a free and independent Burma. Suu Kyi founded the political party that won the 1990 elections, but was not allowed to take the reigns of authority. She was placed under house arrest for more than a decade.

The first woman in Asia to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, Suu Kyi has become as important a symbol of the struggle for peace with justice as Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.

As always, the movie, discussion, refreshments and a handout of Suu Kyi’s famous Freedom From Fear speech are all free. For more information, call (989) 792-9766.
