Wound,Disability, and Crackdown on Protest in Thailand

From 14 October 1973 and 6 October 1976 to the Red Shirts and the PDRC, each major demonstration in Thailand came with not only the will to change the country but also with loss. Some of the dead became heroes and some were treated like criminals, while those who did not die have to live with their wounds and disabilities. Some are compensated for it. Some have not received even an apology. 

ThisAble.Me and Prachatai talks to people who were injured and disabled in a political demonstration in a new documentary "Wound, Disability, and Crackdown on protests in Thailand."

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.
