Thai military declares coup
When eating sandwiches in public is unlawful
As public gatherings are in violation of junta's rule, the students have resorted to eating sandwiches in the open to display their protest. The police are under the command of the army ever since the junta had squashed democracy.
The authorities have banned the anti-coup demonstration of a 3-finger salute and has incredibly banned students from eating sandwiches in public. The junta suspects that the act of eating sandwich is a sign of rejecting their presence as the ruling regime of Thailand.
Yesterday a police officer forced an art gallery in Chiang Mai province to call off a screening of "1984," the film based on George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel about a society living under an oppressive authoritarian regime.
