Is Thailand's civil society waking up again? - Thitinan Pongsudhirak

 It is hard to believe how the military-backed government of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha that appeared so strong not so long ago now looks shaky enough to be untenable.

For more than three years from the time it seized power by force in May 2014, the military regime carried the day with ease. There were sporadic noises of dissent but they were not sufficiently sustained and critical to be a threat to government's survival. These civil society noises, together with political parties, are now on rise and may build into a crescendo of opposition to the military government. Thailand's civil society that has been so instrumental in political change and democratisation in the past may be making a comeback after a dormant and divided period if entrenched military rule continues to abuse power at will.
