Censorship: alive and well in 'democratic Thailand'

John Unpakorn (brother of "Coup For the Rich" author Giles) and Supinya Klangnarong have been charged along with others for leading the protest against the NLA. The aim of the protest was to disrupt the legislative process that would enact the latest incarnation of the ISO commands: a set of laws that give considerable undemocratic powers to the military.

Take look here to see just how dangerous the protest leaders look.

And on the subject of the "Coup for the Rich" book, the book has been "requested" withdrawn by the new government and "investigated" for possible lese majeste. Too bad the book is available for free download here. Read it and decide for yourself.

I'm cheering both Unpakorns all the way.
