Preparing for book burning

22 03 2021

Thailand’s regime continues to push the country down into the abyss of a dark authoritarianism.

Thai PBS reports that police “raided the anti-establishment Fah Diew Kan printing house and seized many copies of a book called “The Monarchy and Thai Society”, which police claim were intended for distribution to protesters at Sanam Luang on Saturday evening.”

Some of the books do appear to have been distributed. The book is The book is a “compilation of the speeches about the monarchy given by Arnon Nampa, … currently … detained, with others, at the Bangkok remand prison on lèse majesté charges.”

Police seized a large number of copies, promising to “carefully check the book for any content which is deemed insulting or critical of the monarchy.”

We have no doubt that the police will locate something in the book they consider lese majeste and this may lead to even more arrests.
