A non-junta roadmap

17 02 2018

The junta has a roadmap that we have dubbed the map for the road to nowhere. We say this because the junta’s “roadmap” changes whenever the generals want more time in power.

A roadmap that might be more likely to be followed has been announced by pro-election activists.

They have set “a clear timetable for rallies until May” that is also “challenging politicians to make up their minds whether to stand alongside the people or the military.”

The challenge to the politicians is useful because they have shown themselves spineless before the military dictatorship. They have been “conspicuous by their absence at pro-election rallies so far…”.

The next pro-democracy gathering “would take place at Lan Ya Mo in Nakhon Ratchasima at 5pm on Sunday, followed by a rally at the Thammasat Tha Phra Chan campus at 3pm next Saturday.” Other events are planned for March 10 and 14.

Then in “May the groups plan to gather every Saturday, and to stage a non-stop rally from May 19-22.”
