Junta gets a slap

27 01 2018

The activists on the “We Walk” march have been handed an important if  temporary victory by the Administrative Court.

It has ruled that they may “continue their peaceful campaign without interference from the police” as they walk to Khon Kaen.

The Court on “issued a court order to the Royal Thai Police to facilitate members of People GO Network to carry on their long march…”.

The court order states that “police should refrain from conducting any operation against the exercise of freedom of expression by the activists until the end of the march on February 17.”

To be frank, this is not unexpected given the coalition of activists and intellectuals involved. At the same time, the military junta is highly embarrassed.
