The fight against exploitation in Thailand continues on many fronts

The current political crisis in Thailand has reached an impasse with both sides of the ruling class not able to defeat the other. Nevertheless, this impasse has serious implications for workers and other activists. Recent debates have now raised the issue of racism with attempts to scapegoat migrant workers from Burma – who are routinely employed in the worst paying and most dangerous jobs (see here and here). The repressive Lese Majeste law is still continuing to be used against activists and others, like Somyot languish in jail. Meanwhile, the class struggle for workers continues at their workplace. source:::
