Human rights horror

24 05 2015

Yes, the case of boat people has been a human rights disgrace, repeated over decades in and around Thailand, but the horror PPT comments on today is about the military dictatorship’s “understanding” of human rights.

To date, the junta has shown no particular understanding of human rights. The regime prefers to trample human rights, national and international.

But in a demonstration of the military dictatorship’s “understanding,” a report at NNT News is startling. The junta’s Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Don Pramudwinai has had:

“a meeting in Bangkok with Luo Haocai, Vice Chairman of the National Committee of the 9th and 10th Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and President of China Society for Human Rights Studies (CSHRS) during the latter’s visit to Thailand in order to strengthen cooperation on human rights with academic institutions and relevant organizations in Thailand.

Both sides discussed and exchanged views on several issues of common interest including human rights projects and activities of both governments and civil society organizations in both countries.

In addition, they shared their views on efforts to increase public awareness on human rights, which should start from young children and adolescents, as well as cooperation in researches and studies to promote human rights in the era of information technology and social media.

We can imagine hired “academics” and royalist flunkies like Bowornsak Uwanno and Panitan Wattanayagorn lining up for trips to China and money for “research” and propaganda “public awareness” campaigns.

The idea of a military dictatorship and a one-party state “cooperating” on what they think is “human rights” is not just alarming but horrifying.
