He said he never expected that Bangkok people from all walks of life would show their deep care and sympathy on the poor farmers who will never speak of their plight unless they were extremely suffered and could no longer stand up with the injustice.
He said all the funds raised would be spent to help farmers fighting for justice in the court and get their money back from the cheated government of the caretaker prime minister.
He assured that all farmers would get their money back while the Lawyers Association of Thailand would provide more than 5,000 lawyers nationwide who are members of the association to help take notes of their complaints to file to the court.
Pichitr farmers currently on Pathumwan stage
Female farmer: “I was promised payment from the BACC (Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives) but I haven’t received anything. I am begging PM Yingluck to pay us. I don’t have any money for my child to attend school. Yingluck, you have a child too, but you don’t have to worry about how to feed your son his next meal. Why are you so cruel?
My husband cautioned me against being arrested for appearing on stage today. I say, let the government go ahead and arrest me, a citizen that they robbed. If you have any compassion you would pay us! We don’t have anything left. If you don’t have the means to pay us, then step down and let someone else govern for once!”
