Ghosts of the dead

From Thairath, November 7, 2013
Cartoon title: When you come… just blow a whistle, when we came, our heads… were blown off by you.
[Blowing whistle in front of the Democracy Monument is former deputy premier Suthep Thuagsuban.]
On Suthep’s shirt: 100 dead bodies [refers to the Red Shirt protest in 2010]
On the hooded figure’s robe: Order to suppress the people [refers to the Red Shirt protest in 2010]
Road sign reads: The Kok Wua Intersection [where several people including Japanese photographer Hiroyuki Muramoto were killed]
Words on the ghosts at right, from top: Hiroyuki Muramoto; victims of the April 10, ’10 area tightening operation; Ratchadamnoen [Avenue], the Kok Wua Intersection, Phan Fah [all areas where fighting and deaths took place]
Phi Nooring: May I join the protest?
Mouse: People died on this road.
[This cartoon points out the irony of the Democrats protesting near where Red Shirts and the military clashed in 2010 resulting in 25 deaths.]
