Police disrupt (publishing) plot

20 09 2020

The activists arranging yesterday’s rally were intercepted by police on their way to Thammasat University.

Parit “Penguin” Chiwarak was transporting “50,000 copies of a booklet containing the transcription of the speeches on monarchy reform given at the 10 August demonstration at Thammasat University’s Rangsit campus which were to be given out at the protest on Saturday afternoon.”

The police, claiming “national security,” declared that “the booklet is illegal and an attempt to overthrow the government,” later adding that “the content could be considered an insult to the monarchy.” They confiscated the booklets “and took the students with them to the police station.”

In fact, the publication is also available online and has been widely downloaded.
