A woman holding a portait of Myanmar detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi takes part in a demonstration to ask for Suu Kyi's immediate release, in Paris, on August 8, 2009. Similar actions are planned around the world, including Japan, Canada, Thailand or South Korea to mark the 21st anniversary of the 1988 pro-democracy uprising which ended in a massacre by Myanmar government troops. The 1988 uprising made Suu Kyi a national hero, but the Nobel Peace Prize laureate has been locked up for nearly 14 of the past 19 years. (OLIVIER LABAN-MATTEI/AFP/Getty Images)
