Thai Politics Are Paralysed and Nobody Knows What to Do

01 Oct 2023  |  www.vice.com
Thailand is experiencing political paralysis with ongoing protests led by Suthep Thaugsuban aiming to overthrow the current government and end the influence of exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra. The protests, driven by middle-class supporters of the opposition Civil Movement for Democracy, are largely peaceful but well-organized and funded. Protesters demand the removal of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and propose suspending democracy to reform the political system. The government, weakened by a failed amnesty bill, faces uncertainty as the army remains neutral and a judicial coup looms as a possible outcome. The situation remains fluid with no clear resolution in sight.

Thailand’s Prime Minister Wants to Shut Down Media Outlets That Don’t Praise the Government

06 Apr 2015  |  www.vice.com
Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha has threatened to shut down media outlets that do not praise his government, amidst international criticism for replacing martial law with even more draconian measures. Human rights groups are concerned about the suppression of freedom of expression and the press in Thailand since the military coup that brought Prayuth to power. The United Nations and the US State Department have condemned Prayuth's remarks about executing uncooperative journalists. The situation has been compared to past media repression in Myanmar, and organizations like Amnesty International and the Committee to Protect Journalists have expressed alarm over the decline of press freedom in Thailand.

Is Thailand On the Brink of Civil War?

31 Mar 2014  |  www.vice.com
Tensions in Thailand escalate as anti-government protests resume in Bangkok, with calls for the downfall of the government. The pro-government 'red shirt' supporters in the north signal readiness for conflict. The political crisis stems from a deep-rooted struggle for control, with the Royal Thai Army warning of civil war. The anti-government faction, led by Suthep Thaugsuban, has yet to achieve its goals, while Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra faces corruption charges over a rice scheme. The Constitutional Court's annulment of February's election adds to the uncertainty. Both sides prepare for more rallies and confrontations, with the potential for violence and further division.

Opposition Leaders Are Being Shot Dead in the Streets of Bangkok

30 Jan 2014  |  www.vice.com
Tensions in Bangkok are escalating with anti-government protesters, led by the Civil Movement for Democracy, paralyzing the city and facing violent attacks. The protests, initially sparked by an amnesty bill for exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, have evolved into a larger movement demanding the abolition of the Shinawatra family in politics and unspecified reforms by a non-elected council. Despite a state of emergency and the upcoming elections on February 2, the opposition, led by Suthep Thaugsuban, is vowing to disrupt the polls. Incidents of violence, including shootings and grenade attacks, have targeted protest camps and opposition leaders, with one yellow-shirt leader, Suthin Taratin, being shot dead. The military maintains a stance of neutrality but is ready to intervene, and the government insists on proceeding with the elections, leading to a situation with no clear resolution in sight.

Is Thailand Heading Toward a Coup This Week?

13 Jan 2014  |  www.vice.com
Thailand's anti-government protesters, primarily middle-class urbanites, have been demonstrating since November against the Pheu Thai Party's attempt to pass an amnesty bill that could allow former PM Thaksin Shinawatra to return from exile. Protesters aim to replace the government with an unelected council and are moving their rally to Bangkok's commercial center, raising fears of violence and military intervention. The Royal Thai Army's troop movements in the city add to coup speculations, although the army claims it's for Armed Forces Day. The National Anti Corruption Commission's charges against lawmakers could lead to a power vacuum, potentially filled by the military. There are concerns of civil war, but observers note the middle-class protesters have little to gain from national collapse. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is mediating talks between the government and opposition, while Bangkok prepares for potential disruptions from the protests.

Thailand's Full Moon Parties Have Been Taken Over by YOLO Idiots

02 Aug 2013  |  www.vice.com
The Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan, Thailand, has transformed from a hippy gathering to a hedonistic event attracting 20,000 participants, including actuarial science students. The party is characterized by cheap alcohol, magic mushroom milkshakes, and dangerous activities like fire jumping. Despite the presence of the Royal Thai Police, incidents of theft, injury, and drug sales persist. The British Embassy has taken an active interest in the safety of partygoers. The event has seen serious incidents in the past, including deaths and assaults. Locals and tourists seem indifferent to the darker aspects, focusing instead on the economic benefits and the pursuit of fun.
