The story of the royalist massacre of students on October 6, 1976, which the Thai regime wants everyone to forget
I also went to the commemoration Ceremony at Thammasat Traprachan Campus This Year, Even if the headmaster was announced that prohibits the ceremony to be set inside the campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So the ceremony was jam-up a lot but many people in many ages have come more than any years in the past!!! That was Terrific krub..
Now, according to the Voice TV, there has some interesting efforts to push October 6 Massacre incident to the ICC (International Criminal Court) to consider and make a guilty judgement to Behind Curtain mastermind of the massacre, Ajarn Somsak Jeamteerasakul said there is no hope to it but, I think it is a good and interesting move for psychology war krub…
October 6, I think We thais have to moaning and commemorating it for the rest of ours short human life 1. For Praise the Sacramento Heroes and their relatives. 2. For Lesson Learning to Prevent the Tragedy to be occur again in the nearly future krub. Khun Andrew
I think many readers will tend to take the view that a significant part of the historic reason for not seeking answers to the Thammasat massacre is that culturally there isn’t a strong inclination to dig for truth. Anyone who’s been exposed to the typical customs and found him or herself attempting to get to the bottom of a subject will attest to eventually realising that delving into detail just isn’t something they do, even in matters of importance.
That notwithstanding, the fact that there was no significant inquiry into the incident, nor redress for the state’s actions says everything about the way in which Thailand, under Bhumibhol’s regime, treated ordinary people — with utter contempt. All were seen as unquestionably guilty if not overtly playing the sycophantic, monarchy-idolising game. Though clearly he knew he had taken a step too far, recognising that the monarchy’s prestige was in doubt and its future might be precariously at stake — Vajiralongkorn’s sudden return being an indicator of the perceived chaos. No small wonder Vajiralongkorn has turned out to be such a vicious and violent character himself with such a low regard for people — he’s the result of an upbringing of stamping out all who seek a better future than the Chakris are willing to offer.
i truly fear that this current military regime, under the whims & caprice of the uber-sadistic Vajiralongkorn, may inflict a massacre at some point against the current protesters
Yeah, Mr.Andrew MacGregor Marshall. Thank you very much for this week precious Secret Siam Newsletter about October 6 krub…😿❤️🌎👍
One shocking thing about that picture is the palace roofs on the right.
This is not some remote provincial city. Rather this location is in the centre of Bangkok in sight of the Royal Palace.
The roof angles are nearly the same as I photographed when visiting the weekend market the year before.
Ban King UK and Thailand
Scothland and UK shouldn’t have monarchy same with Thailand
