Martyr me

From Thairath, April 1, 2021
Title: Only asking for the choice
Somyot says: Wishing for the death penalty to end all the problems and shorten time to a trial and then people don’t have to fight to release me.
On his shirt: Prisoner
In his hand: Justice; Death
Phi Nooring: Misery of the fighter
Mouse: Living with suffering

[Refers to political activist Somyot Prueksakasemsuk who was jailed and accused of several infractions including Article 112 along with other anti-government protest leaders. The courts have rejected all requests for bail citing several factors including the leaders’ vows to habitually repeat speaking out against the monarchy. Due to this, Somyot called for death penalty to end all his charges and prevent his followers from having to fight to save him from injustice.]
