Aung San Suu Kyi

Noted dissident Aung San Suu Kyi speaks to supporters at Hlaing Thar Yar Township in Yangon, Myanmar (formerly known as Rangoon, Burma) on November 17, 2011. 

She had been released from many years of house arrest the year before.

The photo was posted to Wikimedia Commons by Htoo tay Zar with a tag for the OpenMyanmar project, whose goal is to "promote Myanmar by means of freely and openly accessible photos and videos via Wikimedia projects."
