Right: My scene [my protest] was hijacked.

[Refers to a protest against the military coup in Myanmar held outside the Myanmar embassy in Bangkok.
Major figures in the current student protests and the Progressive Movement showed up for the protests as well, making statements designed for social media coverage and emphasizing that the situation in Myanmar was similar to that in Thailand.
The police forcefully cleared the protest, citing Covid gathering prohibitions. Anti-government media reported that the police “attacked” the protesters and it seemed that the government was being very careful to side with the new regime in Myanmar.
This cartoonist contends that the leaders of Thailand’s anti-government groups attended the protest as they are eager for any way to advance their cause.]
