Freedom of speech to be protected

Everyone has the right to freedom of speech

Free speech is one of the most fundamental of all human rights. International Women's Day is an opportunity for women around the world to celebrate the progress that has been made in realizing human rights – unfortunately, Thailand has little to celebrate.

This is another year, we took this day to stand in solidarity with all those fearless women in Thailand by joining Million Women Rise to raise awareness about the crack down on free speech for women in Thailand 

Almost four years after the coup, the all-men junta still arrests and prosecutes critics of the government, bans political activity, censors the media, stifles freedom of speech, persecutes human rights and women’s rights defenders, silences lawyers and academics, and forces the whole population to live under the threat of a tyrannical government.

Happy International Women's Day! Thank you to everyone who joined us
