Man: Dear God of Democracy… I provide you with our 14 students as an offering to you… Please help inspire millions of people to overthrow the junta like on 14 October, please.
Caption: Old professors still believe in destiny?

[This cartoon contends that academics are using students as the tool to overthrow the junta. The 14 political students were arrested because they conducted a protest that was prohibited by the junta.
Anti-junta protests have been trying to invoke the memory of the October 1973 student protests in the hopes public reaction will lead to the uprising of the people as it did in the 1973 popular uprising.]
