Yes definitely assault and should be charged , there is no excuse for this kind of thing in modern society .

Another peace loving Royalist betraying their brainwashed mindset.

Aside from the fact that standing during a National anthem should be a matter of personal choice, given the law allows such freedoms, the woman in red has no right to do anything, other than possibly

Hilarious! Somehow she was able to walk to where she was, and would have to walk back to get to transport or home yet she couldn't stand. Talk about a lame excuse. I'm not not Thai but when in public i always stand and if walking stop.

Is that you steve ?

I think a spell in jail for assault would be appropriate.

And ban her from vending anywhere near a station or school.

My married American mate who has worked and lived here for years went to watch a movie a few weeks back. He said when the national anthem came on, he was the only one who stood up. Admittedly, the movie auditoriums at these multi-screen venues are smaller these days and there was at most only half-a-dozen others but these 'sitters' were all young locals.

 

Sign o' the times I reckon.

Been happening in CM for 4+ months now. Nothing new. Just us foreigners cannot afford to be caught on camera and then persecuted as ran up the old Thai flag pole for it. But if I had a choice, my days of standing went away with the passing away of a certain beloved man. But I have no choice if I want to preserve my integrity of staying here. I am all for what the young generation sees for their future and respects. It is their life!

This was a huge discussion at my dinner table with the kids and wife last night when watching the news. My kids hope she loses everything and the general thought is she will lose the 1 million baht she is requested to pay for compensation, and she will lose her business, and she will be labelled a Thai Karen forever. And the divide continues.

When I went to see tenet movie at MBK last month there was a group of teenagers near me who never stood up for a particular 'song'for someone  There was an older guy who seemed upset,shocked near me !  Good for them I said !A generation tired of being told what they must do because it's always been so saying NO !

When I was a child in Australia, everybody stood for God Save  etc at the cinema or at school every morning.  No one would have dared sit down.

I would.

I was once given a small piece of memorabilia after I donated some money to a charity collector on the street. I gave it to my then gf and she told me to put it in my pocket for now as females are not allowed to put stuff like that in their pockets (she was wearing jean shorts and had no bag). I told her that she can put money in her pockets, soooo? An explanation was not forthcoming. 

 

I don't know if this is true or not, but it really wouldn't surprise me. So glad I never bought into any of it.

The same thing happened to me in Udon Thani two weeks ago. There were about 60 people in the theater and I was shocked when well over half of the people did not stand. Except for me, they were all Thais.

I have seen the same.  Or, people walking out before it starts then return after.
