The silent funeral ceremony of Samai Wongsuwan

From Manager, October 12, 2010
The man inside the casket is thinking: Up to 4 or 5 thousand people flock to gather at Ratchaprasong. Nobody expresses kindness in participating in my funeral ceremony.
The caption at the bottom reads: The silent funeral ceremony of Samai Wongsuwan

[This refers to the lonely funeral of wanted Red Shirt leader Samai Wongsuwan. Samai died while apparently assembling a bomb. He was surrounded by munitions, weapons, and pro-Red Shirt literature at a safe house in Nonthaburi. While Red Shirts were enthusiastically gathering in public protest, practically no one attended Samai's funeral. Despite Samai's connections to high ranking political figures, Pheu Thai politicians innocently speculated that the blast Samai died in must have had something to do with the troubles in the Thai Deep South.]
