From 14 October 1973 and 6 October 1976 to the Red Shirts (2010) and the anti-Yingluck protest (2011), 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.”
