Our Call to Action!


✊Manushya stands in solidarity with Anon and all pro-democracy activists facing judicial harassment, and everyone fighting for democracy in Thailand and Asia. We vehemently condemn the abuse of the lèse-majesté law, and we call on the Thai government to respect its international human rights obligations regarding the right to freedom of expression and information, laid down in Article 19 of the UDHR and ICCPR. It must also comply with the UPR recommendations on freedom of expression, including the revision of Article 112, which it received during its 3rd UPR cycle. There is no #Democracy in the criminalization of activists and #HRDs!
