From Thairath, October 18, 2016
Title: Thai people have been suffering enough from fighting with each other… let me tell you.
Man at left: You are a bad man.
Man with glasses: If we don’t have a black shirt, we can wear neutral colors with black ribbon or black fabric.
Mouse man: The government needs to have a good explanation [of what is acceptable to wear].
Mouse: The Color of Shirts War.

[This pro-Red Shirt cartoonist is making a point about the vigilantism that occurred after some people were spotted not wearing black after the King’s death. Some took this as a sign of disrespect, but the cartoonist contends these people simply did not have black shirts to wear and chides the government not offering alternatives to wearing a black shirt.]
