Don’t sack Wiwat!

From Manager, September 6, 2018
Title: A knight who fights with the dragon
On the shirt: Deputy Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister
On a sword: Ban 3 hazardous herbicides
On the dragon’s neck: Capitalist
On the dragon’s belly: Multinational companies
On the bottles held by the dragon from left to right: Glyphosate, Chlorpyrifos, Paraquat
On the bottles on the ground from left to right: Kill insects. Kill grasses

[Deputy Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Dr. Wiwat Salyakamthorn is a supporter of organic gardening so he has been in the crosshairs of large Thai companies that sell chemicals to farmers.
However, when he recently supported a total ban on three hazardous herbicides–Glyphosate, Chlorpyrifos, Paraquat–rumors began circulating that large comapnies began lobbying the junta to sack Wiwat from his post.]
