Dear coup supporters: It’s time you say no to new NGO bill

A new law aiming to regulate activities of NGOs and nonprofits in Thailand is expected to pass soon. The government points out that every country has similar laws, necessary for public accountability. NGOs are concerned the law will impose severe restrictions on NGO actions and activities. Despite widespread opposition to this controversial legislation, the movement against it hasn’t gained much traction. Lertsak Kamkongsak, a leader of the Commoner Party, questions whether now is the time for people who have turned a blind eye to injustice to reconsider their position.
