Celebration of Karma arch

From Thairath, June 12, 2014
Title: Celebration of Karma arch
On the sign behind the arch: Welcome to the justice process
On the sign close to skulls: Victims Apr-May 2553 [refers to the Red Shirt protest in Bangkok in 2010]
On hooded man’s shirt: Order to kill people, 100 dead bodies [referring to deaths in Bangkok during the Red Shirt protest in 2010]
Phi Nooring: Order to use real bullets
A mouse: Karma

[Refers to Suthep Thaugsuban, leader of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) who has recently appeared in court for his involvement in the political violence in 2010 when the government ordered the military to clear the Red Shirt protesters.
For many celebration events, such as graduation or wedding, Thais will have an arch at the entrance gate to welcome guests.
Likewise, in the cartoon, this arch is set up to welcome Suthep to go into a legal process for his involvement of killing people in 2010. So, this arch is for welcoming Suthep to receive a punishment due to his actions in 2010.]
