Serving the people into jail

From Thairath, October 16, 2020
Title: Request to build a new statue [for the police]
People from left to right: Stop threatening people; Stop working for the dictator
On the statue: Working to carrying the people

[Refers to the call from the anti-government protest to the police to stop following the government’s order to break up protests, especially arresting protest leaders and wrapping them up in legal cases.
The cartoonist contrasts the situation with the Thai police’s iconic statue and government motto “to serve the people.” In the cartoon, it shows the statue altered to depict the police carrying away one of the protest leaders as shown in a widely circulated photo of his arrest.]
