Jatuporn’s back

From Thairath, August 7, 2018
Title: Moving forward… but not to follow the same history
On the cart: People who called for democracy [showing the dead were merely pro-democracy protesters]
Signs on the cart from left to right: Hero for 14 Oct 16, 6 Oct 19. Black May 2535, Songkran 2552, Apr-May 2553 [These were times of political unrest when protesters clashed with the authorities–1973, 1976, 1992, 2009, 2010]
Signs on the bridge: Exit for Thailand; No dictator; Unity; No injustice
Phi Nooring: Change for [those who] die… not die before a change
Mouse: Welcome back to freedom

[Refers to Red Shirt leader Jatuporn Prompan who was released from jail after time for defaming former prime minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.
On his release he called on all political groups to join hands in finding the way out of the cycle of coup and disputed elections.
The crocodiles in the water illustrate that for Jatuporn to achieve his goals, he must be careful as the way is dangerous.
With some Red Shirt leaders defecting to support the junta many will be looking to see if Jatuporn’s words for political unity still mean he supports a return to power for Thaksin or if he will defect and support the military.]
