The Bridge of Peace in Wild Style

From ThaiRath, Cartoon by Zia, September 10, 2010
The cartoon title reads: The bridge of peace in wild style
A soldier starts across the bridge towards two figures on the other side representing the Pheu Thai Party.
The word on planks making up the bridge: Merely ask for house dissolution, making [legal] charges, and assassins, bringing charges of terrorism [and of] toppling the high institute [meaning the monarchy], reform-reconcile-reunite [meaning a sacrifice]
The word on the sign held by children reads: Return the room of truth to the media space [meaning to end censorship of Red Shirt publications]
The sign at the bottom left: Stop chasing and killing red shirts
The mouse says: Release political prisoners

[The mouse man is artist Zia's caricature of activist Sombat Boongamanong, whose nickname is Nuling [or Mouse]. He always appears at the edge of Zia's cartoons calling on human rights and reform.]
