LETTER TO THE BANGKOK POST RE DICTATORSHIP IN THAILAND
August 7, 2001 edition
Letter to the editor, printed in Postbag
A long dictatorship is just beginning
I have thought of a hundred different things to say, but couldnt come up with anything strong enough - so the following will have to do.
As a firm believer in karma, I hope the Thai people - the majority at least - enjoy what they are about to get. The hard-fought reforms of the last few years have been destroyed. You are faced with at least ten years of institutionalized dictatorship by a criminal elite.
For those few who opposed the Thaksin travesty, although the future is bleak, please continue your struggle for democracy and equality.
