Repression in Thailand increases to new levels

Contrary to some of its earlier statements, the military junta in Thailand is consolidating its power and continuing to stifle opposition. The application of Lese Majeste is a favoured method to target opponents with the most recent cases involving an activist already in jail while another person was indicted for a Facebook post. There are now grave fears for the wellbeing of Thanakorn Siripaiboon. The military’s total power is also increasing the level of corruption in the country with many of the military rulers implicated. A recent project seeks to document the experiences and lives of the hundreds of activists who have had to flee the country.
