Caption: Are we going to remain idle… and let these 9 old men fight on their own?

[Refers to judges under pressure by Red Shirts who are trying to prevent a ruling against the Pheu Thai Party. To refer to a person as a “buffalo” is an insult meaning they are stupid. Here it is used to refer to the pro-Thaksin Red Shirts.
Red Shirts have been protesting at the Constitution Court demanding that all nine judges resign by May 8 to make way for new judges to be appointed by the Red Shirts. They claimed that the court is a legacy of the 2007 coup and rules on cases beyond its jurisdiction.
The cartoonist calls on people to support the judges who are facing Red Shirt threats.]
