Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi participated in a town hall meeting with Amnesty International at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. on September 20, 2012. It was moderated by MSNBC Host Alex Wagner. Aung San Suu Kyi has called for the release of the members of the Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot. At this event Suu Kyi accepted a bouquet from family members of one of the group's three members, Nadia Tolokonnikova. Myanmar democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi had just received the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor Congress can bestow, at a ceremony in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda on the previous day.
