Message of support for Somyot
“I think of you and Darunee all the time. Your treatment has been and remains shameful. I’m glad you’re still able to hold up in the face of such criminal abuse.
It seems to me that your release depends upon a real peoples’ government and a real peoples’ constitution … nothing seems possible under the coup’s constitution and the coup’s courts and commissions.
So I hope that the red shirts will finally see that they need to elect their own leadership in place of the appointed ‘core leaders’ – whose interests are not those of the red shirted, or any of the people of Thailand, but are those of the people who have appointed them – and that the red shirts and all the peoples of Thailand will together write a peoples’ constitution and elect a peoples’ representative government without the ‘benefit’ of the coup-appointed ‘election commission’. And that that government will see to your release and to the release of all political prisoners’ in Thailand and will eliminate the so sorely abused Article 112.
Stay strong Somyot. You are an inspiration to us all. I hope your example can inspire the red shirts and all the people of Thailand to rely upon themselves, to look after their own interests, and in so doing to enable your release.”
