Accounts of the dead III: a BBC report

3 06 2010

The BBC’s Assignment program has a new report  entitled “Thawil – the Red Shirt Protestor.” The BBC blurb says this:

On 19th May, Thai soldiers stormed an anti-government protest in Bangkok. It was the climax of a 6-week stand-off between the Thai government, and the protestors known as Red Shirts. More than 80 people were killed during the confrontation. One of them was Thawil, a 36 year old rice farmer from the northeast of the country. In the aftermath of Thailand’s latest democratic crisis, Lucy Williamson has travelled from Bangkok up to the protest heartlands in the poorer north-east, to assess how deep the wounds are, and where Thailand goes from here.
