22 02 2016

Lee Yu-Kyung is writer, photographer and radio correspondent for Korean Broadcasting System, based in Bangkok. Readers may find the story about Netiwit Chotiphatphaisal, a 19 year-old high school student and a conscientious objector in Thailand.

He’s refusing the draft. He declares:

Military rule has dominated Thai society, not only now but also for a long time…. They controlled text books to promote nationalism and respect of the army. We know they want to make Thailand a military state….

The story is worth reading.
