From Thairath, December 10, 2015
Left, Uncle Sam: The military government is limiting the freedom of the new democracy movement group by not-allowing them to speak with people who come to support them…
Middle: ….finally they use finger language to communicate
Man: What did they do?
Rgiht: The new democracy movement group sent the signal to people by lifting 3 fingers while people answered using the middle finger.
[The contention here is that most people do not believe that protester against the junta (using the 3-finger Hunger Games salute) is a protest for democracy or free speech, but instead is an attempt to push Thaksin’s agenda.]
