Protests have plagued Thailand for what seems like years, but we haven’t seen a lot of coverage by mainstream media in the United States. So why aren’t we hearing more about it? Find out on this edition of A Public Affair to learn more!
On Friday February 7th, our host Esty Dinur was joined by UW-Madison professor and award winning author, Thongchai Winichakul to discuss what’s going on in Thailand and how the protests could affect the country.
Winicakul explained a little bit of the history of the conflict in Thailand such as who’s protesting and what are they protesting about. In addition, Winicakul and Dinur conversed about Thailand’s recent elections and how the outcome could impact the country.
