Myanmar dissident asks crowd to join in fight for change

Aung San Suu Kyi told supporters to not give up hope and join in her push to bring change to Myanmar Sunday, one day after the democracy activist was released from house arrest, according to The New York Times.

"I'm not going to be able to do it alone. You've got to do it with me. One person alone can't do anything as important as bringing change and democracy to a country," Suu Kyi said, according to CNN

Myanmar's ruling generals have placed Suu Kyi under house arrest for 15 of the last 21 years. Her return to her political activism came just one day after her release, according to The New York Times.

The 1991 Nobel Peace Prize winner spoke to an excited crowd about the need for a national reconciliation, gaining waves of support.
