14 October 1973 memorial

14 October 1973 is an important date to recall and to remember in the struggle for democracy in Thailand. While the monarchy’s role in the events have been eulogized and image-made, this was a people’s movement.

2Bangkok.com has a reproduction of pages from newspapers from 1973 and a link to this Wikipedia entry and to this YouTube video. Readers might also be interested in participants reflections here. There are more photos of the memorial here. TIME’s archive has this story. The latter link isn’t working consistently. Readers may need to cut-and-paste the link into their browser address window (http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,910857,00.html).
