Some are on protected land

From Thairath, July 25, 2019
Title: Noisy Forest again
On the sign: Resort encroached on forest
On the sign close to people sitting down: People have allegedly encroached on the forest even they have been there since their ancestors. [this shows the authorities arresting poor villagers who are accused of living or farming on protected land; however many of these homesteads exited in the area long before the land was protected]
On the man’s shirt: Call for the return of forest [this is probably a forest officer]
On the house: PPRP
Phi Nooring: Party in the illegal area.
Mouse: The owner is still fine. [The owner of the property maintains his business without any charges. The owner of the resort is believed to have strong ties with officials to deal with any allegations.]

[Refers to the Palang Pracharat Party (PPRP) seminar held at the 88 Garmonte Resort in Nakhon Ratchasima province. This resort allegedly encroaches on forest land. The party has been strongly criticized by the opposition on having their event on the illegal resort.]
