Myanmar Migrants Welcome Mother Aung San Suu Kyi in Thailand. Thousands of of people waving flags and shouting slogans have gathered outside a Burmese migrant center in Thailand ahead of a visit Wednesday by Myanmar opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
Chanting “Long live Mother Suu,” members of the crowd also held photos of Suu Kyi and her father General Aung San, a revolutionary who was assassinated six months before Myanmar’s independence from British rule.
Suu Kyi is due to tour a prawn market in Mahachai southwest of the Thai capital of Bangkok, and will then address migrant workers from a balcony in a neighborhood crammed with small local shops. Onlookers could be seen sitting on roofs and leaning over balconies awaiting her arrival.
