Cartoon title: What right do you have to order us dead?
From left: The Attorney General sued us for ordering protesters killed in April-May 2010, causing almost 100 deaths and more than 2,000 injuries.
Middle: It’s a political persecution. We’ll fight to death. We want to ask for a chance to prove ourselves.
Skulls stuck on the sickle: Don’t give it [the chance] to anyone.
Right, woman on the right nicknamed Nong Ked: You don’t give us any chance to defend, but give us death sentences. What right do you have to order your people to shoot [us]?

Front left boy, Nong Choe: You want a chance for yourself, but don’t want others to have it. [‘Nong Choe’ is Mr. Samaphan Srithep, a young activist who was shot and killed in May 2010 while he was observing the political turmoil in the Rangnam area.]
