    Only Micky Mouse Re-runs Allowed

    'Hotel Rwanda' banned, deemed too controversial


    By The Nation
    Published on April 24, 2010





    State Railway of Thailand governor Yutthana Thapcharoen yesterday came out to oppose screening of the 2004 film "Hotel Rwanda" at Hua Lamphong railway station.


    Refusing to grant permission for it to be shown on the station's 200inch LED screen, Yutthana claimed the film could worsen tensions, because it was based on the reallife political conflict between Rwanda's Hutu and Tutsi tribes that resulted in the deaths of almost 1 million people in 1994.

    Saree Ongsomwang, leader of the People Who Do Not Accept Civil War group, said: "The purpose of showing this movie was to warn Thais to rethink the present political conflict here, which is damaging the Kingdom. Thais must focus on the future of the country. We have to believe we can resolve our disagreements on our own."
    Parichart Worachin, a passenger who was waiting for a train at Hua Lamphong, remarked: "I find it deplorable that this movie has been banned. It portrays actual events and promotes nonviolence. In my opinion, the solution for Thailand is for Thais to be united. If we keep on fighting, we'll only destroy this country with our own hands."

    Meanwhile, Pol Gen Takealookat Morethaiporn, told reporters during today's press conference that Thai police would now be carrying larger brown bags during their rounds at both Nana Plaza and Soi Coyboy entertainment areas. The public are asked to make donations toward the Thai Police Retirement Fund and that all donations over 1000 baht are tax deductable and a receipt will be issued.
