Today, they are ordering to suppress millions of farmers

From Thairath, June 17, 2013
Title: Today, they are ordering to suppress millions of farmers.
On the hooded figure: Corruption… Loses… Stop… [these are the accusations that the rice program creates huge losses and is plagued with graft]
On the robe: ‘order to kill people’ and ‘100 dead people’ [referring to the clearance of the Red Shirt protest in 2010]
Word at the right corner: Rice traders [this is a hand that is inside the hooded figure meaning that vested interests are opposing the rice scheme]
PM Yingluck Shinawatra is giving a farmer a rice bag that reads: Rice pledging scheme for better lives of Thai farmers.
Mouse: To narrow the farmer’s power
