Pro-democracy groups back in focus after projected messages

By The Nation

In the wake of messages projected on Sunday (May 10) on the walls of buildings and sites related to the 2010 red-shirt crackdown, the authorities are now keeping a close eye on all pro-democracy groups.

 

The projected messages, reading “finding the truth”, also went viral on social-media.

 

Though police are guarding the sites where the messages were projected, no moves have been made to prosecute those behind the campaign.

 

Metropolitan Police chief Pol Lt-General Pakkapong Pongpetra said police was collecting evidence to see if the expression of such messages violated other people’s rights.

 

Meanwhile, authorities are tracking down the 40 or so people who attended the memorial ceremony for Khattiya “Seh Daeng” Sawasdipol – an Army major-general who supported the red-shirt movement and was shot in the head on May 13, 2010 while being interviewed by a New York Times journalist.

 

The attendees of the memorial will be prosecuted for allegedly violating the emergency decree.

 

Red-shirt activist Anurak Jeantawanich, 51, was arrested for allegedly organising the ceremony, but he denied the allegation and has been let out on a bail guarantee of Bt30,000.

No Red fan, but can't silence the will of a proper democracy in the making. This ain't Burma. Something will give soon.

Absolutely. In this modern age of social media there is no way the brainwashing and indoctrination by the Thai establishments will be able to continue.

 

It definitely won't end soon, but it will certainly end at some point in the near future. I for one cannot wait.

At last an admission that the current government is anti-democracy!  

What does it mean to be pro-democracy?
The pro-democrats generally embrace liberal values such as rule of law, human rights, civil liberties and social justice, yet their economic positions vary.

Democracy needs bleeding blood to grow. It won't come that easy. 

And even though you get it, it doesn't guarantee satisfaction. 

Without educated public with high civility, it will follow footstep of Philippine or Venezuela.

They don't want proper democracy. They just want 200thb a day for demonstrating and creating unrest.

They still believe Thaksin's lies, that if they vote for him (or his Red pawns) everybody will have a house and pick-up truck in less than a year.
