Since the coup d’état on 22 May, Thais have lived with their freedoms and liberties limited. Eating sandwiches and reading George Orwell’s 1984 in public have become crimes. Imitating the Hunger Game’s three-finger salute can land you in jail for seven days. People live in fear that they may be summoned and detained in a military camp. All kinds of media are heavily monitored.
