Thaksin stomped on our face!

From Manager, December 24, 2013
Caption: Whow!… Maew stomped! [meaning the man is insulted as if Thaksin put his foot on his face]
On the newspaper: Pheu Thai puts Yingluck as number 1 candidate on its Party List
On the headband: Regain the country
On the shirt: Masses of people

[This refers to how both Yingluck and other Shinawatra relatives are at the top of the Pheu Thai Party list. Brother-in-law Somchai Wongsawat is at number 2. Cousin and foreign minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul is at number 4 (Surapong being especially controversial for using the Thai Foreign Ministry to facilitate Thaksin’s passport and foreign travels).
This flies in the face of the anti-government movement’s goal of removing Thaksin influence from the government. It also makes them think that a successful election result for the party will mean a return to a complete rewrite of the constitution and amnesty for Thaksin.]
