“Letters to Da”

22 09 2009

For PPT readers who can read Thai, we wish to bring “จดหมายถึง ‘ดา'” (“Letters to ‘Da'”) to your attention.  The Progressive Society Assembly (“สมัชชาสังคมก้าวหน้า”) has started a project called “Write Love Letters to Those Who Struggle for Democracy” (““เขียนจดหมายรักถึงนักต่อสู้เพื่อประชาธิปไตย“). They are asking people to write letters of care, support, and greetings — not politics — to Darunee Charnchoengsilpakul (Da Torpedo), and to send them to them.  They will forward the letters to her, as well as collect them to use as part of the events for this year’s commemoration of the 6 October 1976 massacre.  The first seven letters have been posted on Prachatai.

PPT urges you to read the “Letters to ‘Da'”/อ่าน”จดหมายถึง’ดา'” — See “จดหมายถึง ‘ดา’ ฉบับ 7: คนยังคงยืนเด่นโดยท้าทาย” — this is the seventh letter. You can link to earlier letters from the page.

More importantly, join the Project. Write letters of care and support to Darunee. Make sure that she knows that her struggle is appreciated and supported! สู้ต่อไป!
