Ghent | The 12th Asia-Europe People Forum

We were so proud to be apart of the 12th Asia Europe People's Forum ( AEPF 12) in Ghent, Belgium during 29 September - 1 October 2018. The Asia-Europe People’s Forum, has been a strategic gathering of Asian and European civil society networks pursuing democratization and human rights, and social, economic and climate justice. The discussions and exchanges will result in an AEPF-Statement to be presented by AEPF-representatives at the beginning of the 2018 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM)-summit, scheduled to take place in Brussels on 18-19 October 2018.

We had a great discussion during open space workshop on " Unending repression, promised election and restoration of democracy in Thailand"  We also engaged the participants in our campaign on "Free and fair election in Thailand".  

This opportunity, we urged international community to put pressure on the Thai military government to lift the restrictions on civil and political rights so that upcoming national elections can be free and fair.

Thank you Asia Europe People's Forum (AEPF) and Stiftung Asienhaus for having us. A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the open space discussion.

Many thanks to  Praphakorn Wongratanawin for lovely pictures
