Knowledge is Power

.
Why are these very well educated, articulate, seemingly reasonable and 'harmless' Thai people in detention, jailed or exiled?

- Suthachai Yimpresert - several days detention at army base, finally released after going on a hunger strike


- Jakrapob Penkair - charged with LM, in exile


- Giles Ji Ungpakorn - charged with LM, in exile


- Darunee Charnchoensilpakul (also known as Da Torpedo) - 18 years jail after a closed trial


What have they said or done that necessitates such draconian government measures against them?

They expressed their opinions - and opinions are not welcome in Thailand.

Agree.
btw, Are you still blogging?
(I dropped your from my blog list a while ago because I thought you were too critical of the thai people, instead of the system that has made them so)
I now cannot find your blog at all.
