Any thoughts on who else I can get on board, I feel I am getting nowhere but a well documented campaign highlighting how damaging these things would really help the case 

There are some Thai organisations that work for this, but as usual here in the end most Thais seem to be only interested in money and just give lip-service to the idea of changing things.

 

A very worthwhile cause though.

"even a bill gates type thing would work, I mean it worked on those crappy cables in a 1km radius of where he mentioned. "

 

No idea what you are on about.

In Thailand? No. Here people care for one thing only.

He is referring to a social media post of Bill Gates where he posted a picture of electrical wires hanging everywhere which prompted the government to be so ashamed to announce they would start putting the cables underground instead.

 

And sure a Bill Gates type of thing would work. I recommend OP to become a billionair and then post a picture of animal abuse in Thailand online shaming the government to change course. Of course it is quite difficult to become one of the richest people on the planet, but if OP tries really hard he might succeed.

Very sad the appalling way animals are treated in Buddhist Thailand. There are good people here who really care, but not many I'm afraid.

....not to mention the exploitation of children.  You can still see women with (drugged?) babies begging on the streets of Bangkok even though there are periodic 'no more beggars' clampdowns by the government.

Can someone inform Bill that they missed the overhead wires in Pattaya

Contact as many agencies related to animal protection/welfare as possible and attempt to bring them together to work as one unit - the larger the better.  And then be prepared for the long game. In the end shame should do it.

Very disturbing, I seen something like some automachines for animals food and something like that in Turkey for example. I couldn't believe that things are so bad in Thailand, I always thought they are quite...progressive with that matter. Have you tried to contact some political party about that thing ?

there are too many humans in the world but yeah I get the point in general a lack of humanity in Thailand look at reports of rape in immigration camps for Burmians and Rohingu they were meant to be looking after these people
