Social media warned not to spread “provocative” and “anti-junta” messages

The coup makers issued the 12th announcement around midnight, asking for “cooperation” from the online social media operators not to disseminate “provocative,” “information inciting unrest,” and “anti-junta” messages. If such information is to be found, the National Peace and Order Maintenance Council (NPOMC) will cease all operations and prosecute those who violate the order.  

Since 2007, Prachatai English has been covering underreported issues in Thailand, especially about democratization and human rights, despite the risk and pressure from the law and the authorities. However, with only 2 full-time reporters and increasing annual operating costs, keeping our work going is a challenge. Your support will ensure we stay a professional media source and be able to expand our team to meet the challenges and deliver timely and in-depth reporting.
