Collecting Red Shirts for the military

From Arun, July 23, 2018
Title: Festival of using sticks to gather the Red Shirts
On the shirt: Issan Red Shirt
On a sign behind the motorcycle: New party

[Refers the coming election in which many political groups, particularly pro-junta groups, are working hard to attract Red Shirt MPs and their supporters to their side.
Red Shirts, in particular those who have history as elected MPs, have been supposedly abandoning their former pro-Thaksin groupings and defecting to pro-military parties.
This indicates that those who have a real interest in winning elections have calculated that their interests are better served by joining the ranks of pro-military parties.
In the cartoon, it looks as if passing thieves on a motorcycle are grabbing the shirts that symbolize defecting Thaksin supporters.]
