Remembering the 14 October 1973 Uprising: Victory of the People #48ปี14ตุลา #14ตุลา

✊🏻 48 years ago today, the 14 October 1973 Uprising or #ม็อบ14ตุลา took place, which remains one of the most important events in modern Thai history. 🙌 A major victory for the people, the protests resulted in the end of Thanom Kittikachorn’s military dictatorship regime. The significance of the event is further amplified by the university-student leaders' success in unifying the entire country for a common goal. 🙏🏻

🚫 BUT - 48 years later, Dictators are still governing! Pro-democracy Youth students and The People are still fighting for a real Democracy.

🚨 Let's also not forget that on October 14, 1973, while being ordered to disperse violence broke out. The government brought in tanks, helicopters, and other military-grade weapons to support the police, resulting in 77 deaths and 857 injuries.

✊🏻 We cannot let it happen again.

✊🏻 We must not allow it.

📣 Manushya Foundation stands in solidarity with Thailand's Youth protesters and all pro-democracy protesters calling for true democracy and an end to dictatorship. We call on the Thai government and the #Monarchy to desist from repeating the violations of the past!
