Independent organizations attentively listen to the whistle blowing

From Thairath, November 2, 2013
Cartoon title: Attentively listen to the whistle blowing
On shirt of man listening: Independent organizations
On paper: Extraordinary agenda; topple the government; get rid of the Premier
On back of man blowing the whistle: The accused [The man is Suthep Thuagsuban, former deputy premier in charge of the national security during Abhisit Vejjajiva’s government. He and Abhisit are accused in thousands of criminal cases deriving from the political turmoil of April-May 2010.]
On back of Death: Order to suppress the people; 100 dead bodies [referring to the Red Shirt protest of 2010]
Words in the crowd: The Democrat [Party]’s followers
Phi Nooring (to the independent organizations): You take orders too?
Mouse: No injustice

[This reflects the Red Shirt view that “independent organizations” that can rule on activities of a government have been used to sideline and topple pro-Thaksin governments. Eliminating these independent checks is a key part of the constitutional amendments being pushed by the government.]
