Around ten members of the faculty along with students from Chiang Mai University’s Faculty of Law met in front of the faculty yesterday evening to practice singing a song which they will be singing later today in front of the main Chiang Mai Police Station.
According to Assoc. Prof. Somchai Preechasilpakul, this event has been planned in advance with hopes of instilling thought amongst Chiang Mai’s police, so that they may reflect on their role in blindingly following orders, irrespective of whether they were just to society or not.
Assoc. Prof. Somchai told CityNews that the police are playing an important role in Thailand’s contentious politics, but there are some questions the police need to ask themselves as to their role in this current climate.
The group plans to sing the Police Marching song later today.
