Socialist Alliance (Australia) statement
- Free Somyot Prueksakasemsuk and all political prisoners in Thailand!
- Abolish the anti-democratic lese majeste law!
- Democracy for Thailand!
January 24, 2013 – The Socialist Alliance of Australia condemns in the strongest possible terms the January 23 sentencing of workers’ rights and free speech advocate Somyot Prueksakasemsuk to a total of 11 years’ jail under Thailand’s draconian anti-democratic “lese majeste” law (Article 112 of the Criminal Code). Somyot and all political prisoners in Thailand should be released immediately and unconditionally.
