    RAJPRASONG – A large-scale, coordinated military and police effort was credited on Sunday with the successful containment and suppression of a single blank sheet of A4 copy paper.
    The paper, which measured 8.5 by 11 inches, was apprehended by soldiers at the corner of Phayathai and Rathawithi roads in the Victory Monument area of Bangkok at 3:47pm on Sunday, and subsequently charged with sedition and violation of orders from the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO).
    “We are pleased with the results of our peacekeeping operations,” said NCPO head General Prayuth Chan-Ocha. “This sheet of paper needed to be stopped, and our forces did their duty.”
    Over 1000 armed men were able to contain a rogue A4 paper. Inset: The offending blank sheet.
    Over 1000 armed men were able to contain a rogue A4 paper. Inset: The offending blank sheet.
    Rumors of the possible illegal assembly of blank pieces of paper spread on social media over the weekend, leading up to the massive response by army troops and police brigades. As of 10am Sunday, no fewer than 600 soldiers and 450 riot-armed policemen, supported by 50 vehicles, were present at key locations throughout the capital, including Victory Monument, Democracy Monument, Rajprasong, Lumpini Park, and a dozen large shopping malls.
    Statements on Thai television by the NCPO had specifically banned the gathering of more than 5 sheets of blank A4 paper, and threatened lengthy jail terms for any paper bearing messages that were contradictory to national unity.
    By 1pm, no paper had showed up at the monitored protest sites, leading to a reduction in security forces and the re-opening of key streets in the areas.
    However, at approximately 3:45pm, a person standing in front of Ratchawithi Hospital held up a blank sheet of paper in front of soldiers and reporters, in a symbolic protest against the coup and military rule. The paper was quickly surrounded, subdued, and taken away in a police van.
    Photographs of the paper indicated that it was blank, white, and probably from a ream of standard 70-gram photocopy/laser printer office paper. Its brand was not immediately identified.
    A statement from police said only that the paper was being examined, questioned, and would be released or charged in accordance with the law. A later comment from the NCPO indicated that the sheet would be tried in martial court for violating army orders and inciting disorder.
    Human Rights Watch has issued a statement condemning the arrest and demanding that the A4 sheet is permitted legal representation, and declaring that the current Thai environment violates “ the fundamental rights of paper, printed or blank.”
    Social media in Thailand has been divided on the issue, with anti-coup netizens calling for a massive show of blank paper at flash mobs throughout the city on Tuesday, while supporters of the coup have called for the paper to be cut in half, or even shredded. Many claimed that the sheet of paper was of foreign origin.
    Blank sheets of paper threaten Thailand's order online and in the streets.
    Blank sheets of paper threaten Thailand’s order online and in the streets.
    One group on Facebook calling itself the Thai Patriots Network Under The King even went so far as to call for a blanket boycott of all paper in A4 size, suggesting that “True Thais should only use A3 or A5 in their offices and homes, and make sure that it is pre-printed with statements that support our sacred institutions.”
    According to social commentator Sulak Sivaraska, the hostility towards blank sheets of paper is not surprising given the current political and cultural environment.
    “Blank paper is, in many ways, more threatening to the conservative Thai than one printed with an aggressive statement,” he said. “The creative possibilities inherent in a blank paper, its invitation to think, wonder, and imagine without constraints or pre-conditions, is anathema to the ruling mythologies of forced unity.”
    “One could say that any paper that doesn’t have some logo on it, corporate or cultural, causes dissonance to the Thai mind,” he added.
    The NCPO remains firm in its position that it acted in the interest of national security, stating in a press release that “The massive deployment of armed troops is entirely necessary to subdue this kind of counter-patriotic aggression.”
    “While we are working towards a future environment where all kinds of paper and paper products are welcome, the roadmap to this environment requires a temporary zero-paper policy.”

    I believe all relevant organisations have been informed, though as most are sponsored by money brookers are only Lip service to the execution.

    Issara was heard commenting anything in paper now has to pay.

    The Paper suppliers organisation centre against repression have reported they shall be buying there Pulp from other sources now.

    Brilliant article by Not the Nation.

    Will be interesting to watch how A4's reorganize their resistance. Quills to the fore.

    are you saying that the Reds have as much to say as a blank A4 page ? I think the irony might have been lost on some here,

    The Reds Resistance Manifest == a blank A4 page

    ^ Perhaps I'm missing something. Anyone mention a red A4? Thought A4's were white?

    He, however, admitted only to the possession of firearms.

    Police seized several items of weapon which included an AK 47 assault rifle, and more than 500 rounds of .223 cartridges and materials used for making home-made bombs.

    Eight people who were involved in the Trat attack are still on the run and the police are now hunting for them.

    Got this from an avid PDRC member. Guess all sides have their version, reasons and justification for actions. Another example of what even well educated fall for if fed on a constant diet of propaganda. Same goes for "reds".

    INdeed. Incredibly naive thinking that John Kerry gives a toss what the opponents to his mate Thaksin think.

    ...oh and as for starting it with Tony Bliar???? What were they thinking. Devalues the truth in the actual video though which is a shame.

    Army invades Phuket to clear violent, illegal taxi drivers

    PHUKET: A deployment of 100 soldiers from Southern Thailand today provided military support to a huge task force of 1,110 police officers and 40 volunteers who swept along the west coast of Phuket to purge the island of illegal, violent, abusive and cheating taxi, tuk-tuk and minivan drivers.

    The soldiers were acting under orders from Maj Gen Peerapol Wiriyakul, Commanding General of the 41st Military Circle, which operates out of the Fourth Army Area Command in Nakhon Sri Thammarat.

    Over 70 drivers were taken into custody in a single blitz led by Lt Gen Panya Mamen, Commander of the Royal Thai Police Region 8 division.

    “I assigned a squad headed by Maj Gen Paween Pongsirin to start tackling this problem on January 30,” Gen Panya told the press this afternoon.

    “His team questioned the staff and owners of 51 businesses, totalling 150 witnesses, which led to 111 arrest warrants issued for 108 people,” Gen Panya explained.

    In the blitz today, 32 warrants were served in Kata-Karon, eight in Thalang, nine in Cherng Talay and 27 in Kamala.

    Although no drivers in Patong were arrested today, the Phuket Gazette has been informed that some of the 35 drivers yet to be arrested are based in Phuket’s main resort town – and the raids will continue tomorrow.

    “Some of the suspects worked illegally as a taxi or tuk-tuk drivers,” Gen Panya said. “Others were legal, but were wanted for specific incidents, such as abusive or violent behavior, or for cheating tourists.”

    All of the drivers arrested were denied police bail.

    There is now a rumour that the military intend to start Thailand's space programme.

    By the end of this decade Thailand will put a man on the moon.

    Very funny.

    I thought Thailand had started a space program some 10-12 years ago?

    Wonder what they'll call the Shin disposal program? Perhaps add in a few more of the family.

    Very good way to syphon of billions of baht, and also let the country pay for the really expensive items such as satellites and getting them up there, that private businesses should be paying... No wonder Thaksin started this agency. I bet he creamed it in from this one.

    Really?

    Not saying that's the case - we don't know - but it sure could be.

    Either way though - six people is a multiple murder - not a fucking massacre FFS.

    You are, once again, rewriting history... That was my point.

    Soldiers on the BTS track.

    These soldiers seen, photographed and videoed shooting into the Wat.

    Their bullets were the ones that killed the people in the Wat...
    How do I post these pictures???
