geldof (and bono) were there when she received it
Suu Kyi honoured in Dublin during 'unforgettable day'

Earlier, there were emotional scenes too at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre where she was presented with the Amnesty International Ambassador of Conscience Award by U2's Bono in front of audience of artists and members of the Burmese community.
(snip)
Bob Geldof later sang a cover of Elvis Costello's What's So Funny 'Bout Peace, Love and Understanding?, having earlier quoted The Cure at Troy by Seamus Heaney. Other artists who performed at the Electric Burma concert included Declan O'Rourke, Damien Rice and rapper Lupe Fiasco.


burma seems to be an unpleasant place with massacres committed by all sides.
Somehow the rohingya muslims have acquired victim status in parts of the west, but they themselves have also committed attrocities,
e.g. Kha Maung Seik massacre, August 2017

You obviously get filtered news over there. Actually, so do we but it's another kind of filter.

BTW all of U2 got the freedom of Dublin.

Mayor says Geldof's decision to return Freedom award is 'ironic'

https://www.rte.ie/news/dublin/2017/1113/919596-geldof/

He added that he was unsure who the award would be handed back to.

// Mayor is a Sinn Feiner.

More than 530,000 Rohingya men, women and children have fled northern Rakhine State in terror in a matter of weeks amid the Myanmar security forces’ targeted campaign of widespread and systematic murder, rape and burning, Amnesty International said today in its most detailed analysis yet of the ongoing crisis.

I don't know why you think I get filtered news. We agree that bad things have happened to the rohingya muslims. What you seem to ignore is that the rohingyas are both victims and assailants.

Burma has a population of about 50 million.
About 5% (so about 2.5 million) are muslim.
About 0.5% (so about 1/4 million) are hindu.
the small number of hindus in burma are mostly in areas which have large muslim populations.
The buddhist majority in burma (almost 90%) would rather the muslims weren't there and are committing genocide against the muslims.
The muslims in turn would rather the hindus weren't in their area and are committing genocide against the hindus

from the link earlier,
After the massacre, many Hindus of the Maungdaw District fled their native areas. The majority of the Hindus were internally displaced within Rakhine State, while around 500 Hindus fled to Bangladesh along with the Rohingya Muslims. Initially the Hindu refugees tried to find shelter in the Kutupalong refugee camp along with the Rohingya Muslims. However, they were ostracized and attacked by the Rohingya Muslims at the camp. In one incident, the Rohingya Muslim refugees tried to forcefully convert an 18-year old Hindu refugee whose husband and parents were killed in the massacre and get her married to a Muslim man. She was later rescued by her uncle.

That's quite something. The hindus forced to leave by the muslims and the muslims forced to leave by the buddhists find themselves  in the same refugee camp, where the muslims continue to attack the hindus

Yes I do. Bono and the lads got the freedom on the same day as she did! Bono probably swung the decision..

U2 - Walk On
And love
Is not the easy thing
The only baggage
That you can bring
And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can't leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it's a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on
Walk on
What you got, they can't steal it
No they can't even feel it

Walk on
Walk on
Stay safe tonight

You're packing a suitcase for a place
None of us has been
A place that has to be believed
To be seen

You could have flown away
A singing bird
In an open cage
Who will only fly
Only fly for freedom

Walk on
Walk on
What you got
You can't deny it
Can't sell it or buy it

Walk on
Walk on
You stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
You can only take so much

Walk on
Walk on

Home
Hard to know what it is
If you never had one

Home
I can't say where it is
But I know I'm going

Home
That's where the hurt is

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
You can only take so much
Walk on

Leave it behind
You've got to leave it behind

All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break

All that you measure
All that you feel
All this you can leave behind

All that you reason
It's only time
And I'll never fill up all my mind

All that you sense
All that you scheme
All you dress up
And all that you see

All you create
All that you wreck
All that you hate

what about taking back the nobel prize?
Her father never won a nobel, but he was presented with the Order of the Rising Sun by Emperor Hirohito during WWII.

It's not every day you get a medal from Hirohito. Beats that stodgy Scandic event.
They probably give you a nice kimono and Samuri sword.
