Renovating to prevent protests

From Arun, February 10, 2021
Inside the box: Bangkok renovates the Democracy Monument by changing stairs to a slope.
On the slope: History

[Refers to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration “renovating” of Democracy Monument by replacing steps around the monument to a slope for flowers to be displayed. This is clearly an effort to make protests at the site more difficult. The cartoonist notes that the changes are really covering over the bloody past history of the nation.
Such “renovations” of protest sites have been common ever since Thaksin’s government was overthrown, resulting in surprise closures of key sites during key protest times for surprise construction that authorities always claimed was long planned.]
