From Manager, October 13, 2014
A man holding the megaphone: You don’t need to bring anything with you. Flowers to be placed on the site of cremation can be found later. Millions of people will join. The crematory will be like a sea of fire!!
Man at right: Let’s burn it. I will take a responsibility for your actions.
Caption: Encouragement is needed even to bring people to a funeral ceremony.
[Refers to the funeral of former Phea Thai MP and Red Shirt supporter, Col Apiwan Wiriyachai, who was died from a lung infection in the Philippines while in exile following the coup and lese majeste charges.
The turnout for his funeral was typical of Thai protests with thousands of rural people passively being bussed to the event and having food and drink provided for them. The resulting crowds are then held up as proof of the continuing strength of the movement.
The cartoonist uses statements made by Red Shirt leaders in 2010 calling on followers to burn down Bangkok as if they are rallying grassroots Red Shirt supporters to attend the cremation ceremony.]
