From Thairath, November 1, 2017
Title: Calling for the independence of the chickens in their hand.
Chickens say: Unlock
On the chickens: Politicians
Phi Nooring: Return the happiness to the chickens [mocking the junta’s motto of “returning happiness to the people”]
Mouse: Holding them tight, then they will die, but if you release them, then they can survive.
[Refers to the Thai proverb “chickens in someone’s hand” meaning someone who has fallen under the power of someone else.
This cartoon is yet another demanding that the junta lift its ban on political activities thus freeing politicians to prepare for future elections.]
