Bury those 3 P’s deeply

From Thairath, September 22, 2020
Phi Nooring: Stop dictators
Mouse: 3 P’s must get out.
On hands from left to right: University students, students, People, Free People
On the plaque: Khana Ratsadon memorial plaque
On the bag: Spend the budget freely [No doubt referring to military mega purchases, such as submarines.]

[On September 20, 2020, a protesters in Sanam Luang installed a 2020 memorial plaque at the rally site to replace the missing Khana Ratsadon memorial plaque placed by those who conducted a coup in 1932 that overthrew the absolute monarchy.
The 3 P’s are PM Prayuth, Deputy PM Prawit (whose nickname is Pom) and Deputy PM Anupong (whose nickname is Pok). This is meant to mirror the “three tyrants” that student protesters managed to unseat during protests in 1973.
Like other editorial cartoons supporting the protests, this downplays the focus on the monarchy at the protests which overshadowed other issues.]
