Updated: Sandwiches and a good read

3 07 2014

Recall the man who showed up for a protest at the U.S. Embassy in what the military junta’s flunkeys decided was a non-protest. Anti-coup protesters, mainly students, decided to test the police and stage further non-protests at the U.S. Embassy.

You don’t need to be a political genius to guess the response of the military dictatorship. Its double standards are wider than the Mekong River in flood, and when an anti-coup non-protest is spotted, everyone involved is hunted down for re-education.Non-protest protest

Khaosod reports that “six members of the student activist group Centre of Students for Democracy of Thailand (CSDT) ate sandwiches and read George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-four in front of the US Embassy in Bangkok.” They claimed the “same privilege” as the pro-coup ultra-nationalist non-protest. Naturally, the students knew that the military junta would apply double standards.

Notorious businessman-cum-police general Somyos Pumpanmuang danced about sounding angry and peeved, declaring that dangerous book reading and sandwich eating anti-coupsters “will be prosecuted for violating the ban on political protests…”.

He wants double standards to be rigorously enforced.

A sadly comical fascist, Somyos sounded schoolboyish when he sneered that: “The police have photographed [the demonstrators] and sent these images to the military for further procedures…”.

Update: WordPress threw us on posting pics for a day or so, so we aided these, from Prachatai, with the one below showing some of the activities banned by the aggressive military junta.
