Thailand’s main opposition Puea Thai Party on Monday opened an exhibition highlighting the pain and struggle witnessed in the recent two-month long anti-government protests in Bangkok. The seven-day exhibition opened, marking the two-month anniversary of the end of violent protests in the capital.
Bangkok, the 19th of July 2010: Open until the 25th of July, the exhibition marks the pain and suffering of the Red Shirt protesters who joined the groups’ ten-week demonstrations demanding the dissolution of the Abhisit Vejjajiva led government and a call for fresh elections.
Held at the Puea Thai Party headquarters, the exhibition is divided into two “white and black” sections. White signifies the preciousness of human life and the human rights that protect that life, while the black represents the corruption, divisiveness and “double-standards” practiced by the government in dealing with the recent political conflicts.
