"I feel unsafe. I always lose things, even clothes. Clothes get stolen when being dried. If we have money to buy good (valuable) things and keep them in the room, we have to be watchful."

On 22 May 2018, about 500 citizens of Thailand gathered at Thammasat University in Bangkok and marched peacefully towards Government House, demanding an end to martial law and return to democratization and civilian rule, starting with elections by the end of 2018.

“P-move (Peoples Movement for a Just Society) wishes to affirm that we are not only poor people who are troubled or abused, but we are also groups of people with our own concrete development models to solve our problems.  We have savings groups, community banks, community welfare systems for building houses, building communities, waste disposal and disaster preparedness; various models exist in concrete form in many localities.”
