Happy New Year/สวัสดีปีใหม่

31 12 2009

As 2009 comes to a close, PPT cannot help but reflect on the year as one in which press freedom was sharply curtailed, speech was silenced, and dissent in Thailand was thwarted whenever possible by the state and its allies.

Yet at the same time, we are inspired by the courage of countless people inside and outside Thailand to continue raising their voices and risking to challenge injustice.

Over the next few days, PPT will have sporadic internet access, so rather than reading this blog, why not instead send a New Year’s card to Khun Da Torpedo, one of the people who has risked, and suffered, as she has fought injustice.  Follow this link for her email and snail mail addresses. Wish her a happy new year, and remind her that you are using your voice outside prison to call for her liberty.

Struggle on! สู้ต่อไป!
