<p>Military personnel visited the office f an anti-establishment social-political journal, asking the editor his opinions towards the Thai junta. &nbsp;</p> <p>Five officers from the 5th Anti-aircraft Infantry at 1:45 pm on Tuesday, 25 August 2015, came to the office of Same Sky Journal (Fah Diew Kan in Thai).</p> <p>The officers said that they came to introduce themselves to people working at the publication because they have taken over the responsibility to do so in place of those who used to be in charge of the same task.</p>
<div>&nbsp;</div> <div> <div>The military has again attempted to censor the anti-establishment Same Sky (Fah Deaw Kan in Thai) publishing house by banning its t-shirts, one of which has the image of a dinosaur, with possible charges of lèse majesté. </div></div>

This shows how serious the decline of basic human rights under the junta is in Thailand.</p> <p>On Sunday afternoon, the military ordered Thanapol Eawsakul, the editor of Same Sky journal (or Fah Diew Kan in Thai), to delete the Facebook status on the conversation with Prajak Kongkirati, a renown political scientist from Thammasat University, at the annual Book Fair in central Bangkok.</p>
