A crocodile laying down to block the canal

From Thairath, March 31, 2021
Title: Canal blocker
PM Prayuth: If you dare enough, then try to overthrow me.
On vessels left: Violate human rights; Economic problems; Dictatorship On vessels right: Freedom; Democracy; Development; Country
Signs held by people left to right: Overthrow Uncle; Overthrow Prayuth; Overthrow Uncle
Phi Nooring: Like a crocodile laying down to block the canal
Mouse: He is a problem.

[Refers to PM Prayuth who the cartoonist shows is like the situation in the Suez Canal and blocking many things.
This also references the Thai proverb “a crocodile laying down to block the canal” meaning a person who blocks everything and becomes an obstacle to move forward or develop.]

From Manager, March 31, 2021
Sign on right: Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem (canal)
Red Shirt Jatuporn: He has been stranded here for over 7 years already… lets move him out of the way!!
Caption: The Suez Canal [saga] is ended… but this canal [saga] is not not over yet.

[This shows Jatuporn who launched a new movement to reunite all the anti-government forces under a new Red Shirt-like banner. Eschewing royal reform, the movement is an attempt to reset the protest movements to a single, focused goal–paint Prayuth as a villain and remove him from office, allowing the opposition to return to power.]
