"It’s like I already have one foot in jail. If I stop now, it’s not too late, but there is no reason that I have to stop, because whenever I stop, then it will be like I’ve given up."
Tantawan Tuatulanon, 20, is a monarchy reform activist currently facing 2 royal defamation charges for conducting a poll on whether people are affected by royal motorcades and for livestreaming from Ratchadamneon Road and saying that an upcoming royal motorcade forced a nearby farmers' protest to move. She is currently detained at the Women's Central Correctional Institution.
We meet Tantawan (meaning "sunflower" in Thai) to talk about her life after she started to campaign for monarchy reform, her determination to keep going despite prosecution and harassment, and the life she would like to live if the society is already good.
