From Thairath, December 24, 2002
Cartoon title: Uninvited show
On backdrop: Thai-Malay cabinets’ co-meeting
On flag carried by protester: Opposing the Thai-Malay gas pipeline

[Unlike most Thai premiers, Thaksin cultivated very public cooperation with neighboring countries at the highest levels. The cartoon refers to one of Thaksin’s mobile cabinet meetings highlighting cooperation with Malaysia.
It was common for Thaksin to blame NGOs for local protests against development. Here it shows NGOs needless protesting needed development and disrupting a high-level government event.]
