Remembering the massacre

From Thairath, October 6, 2017
Title: 6 Oct 19 [1976] Scar in a heart
On the arm: Democracy; Freedom
Phi Nooring: Killed the students inside the city
Mouse: Thai people have never forgotten

[This is a rare editorial cartoon referencing the massacre of students on October 6, 1976 at Thammasat University.
Pro-Red Shirt, anti-junta voices in the media (such as this cartoonist) have consistently spoken up to commemorate pro-democracy protest events and deaths in the past.
This is in keeping with Red Shirt leaders who define their cause as a grassroots pro-democracy movement against dictatorship in line with pro-democracy movements of the past in Thailand.]
