Thailand’s military further restricts civil liberties

The announcement this week by the Thai military junta warning the population not to follow three social commentators on social media is a sign of the increasing determination by the generals to hold on to power. All three commentators are critics of the military dictatorship. In a worrying development, killings by security activists of perceived enemies continue to occur in a climate of impunity.  In the meantime, imprisoned labour activist Somyot Prueksakasemsuk has been able to finish his studies and obtain his political science degree.

Free all political prisoners in Thailand! 

Abolish Article 112! 

End the military dictatorship!
