Jatuphat ‘Pai’ Boonpattararaksa

When justice has no meaning

This is  a challenge from society

Life is not a toy

To be trifled with.  

That is how you lose democracy.

Being selfish, happiness and nice words

Are lip service

Since 2007, Prachatai English has been covering underreported issues in Thailand, especially about democratization and human rights, despite the risk and pressure from the law and the authorities. However, with only 2 full-time reporters and increasing annual operating costs, keeping our work going is a challenge. Your support will ensure we stay a professional media source and be able to expand our team to meet the challenges and deliver timely and in-depth reporting.
