Will help or hurt?


From Thairath, July 23, 2015
Title: Will help or hurt?
On a shirt: NHRC (new) [a National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) was selected to replace the old NHRC due to their terms expiring]
Phi Nooring: Don’t make situation become worse.
A mouse: Just think about them as a human.
Under a cage: Violated the human rights by the state’s power [these are people who the junta have stopped from expressing their anti-coup opinions]

[The cartoon implies that the new National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) should help improve human rights in the country by assisting those who are protesting the coup. New appointees to the NHRC have been criticized for being “royalists” who support lese majeste penalties.]
