MICT has requested Facebook to delete over 10,000 pages offensive to the monarchy

On 23 Nov, Grp Cpt Anudith Nakornthap, Minister of Information and Communications Technology, said that the Ministry had asked Facebook headquarters to delete over 10,000 URLs or pages which contained pictures and messages offensive to the monarchy.

The contents were posted from abroad, and that made it difficult for the Ministry to close them, he said.

He asked anybody who found such contents not to press ‘Like’ or make comments because that would be indirect dissemination. He admitted that offensive content had been rapidly spread in the past 2-3 days. To help disseminate this is an offence under the 2007 Computer Crimes Act, he said.

Peerapol Anuttarasote, a reporter for the Thai News Agency, tweeted through @yoware that during the last three months the MICT had contacted Facebook to eliminate 50 accounts.

Although Facebook has a rule not to reveal posters’ IP addresses, it has yielded to requests to delete inappropriate content and has done so more quickly than before, the reporter said, adding that the MICT insists that it can track down the posters.

Earlier this week, a Facebook account entitled ‘Report Society of Thailand’ was created with the mission to prevent and report on threats via Facebook.  The threats include spam, fake [Facebook] accounts, infringements of intellectual property rights, immoral or violent content, and lèse majesté.

The group urges other Facebook users not to press ‘Like’, share or make comments on targeted pages, but to report them to Facebook staff by clicking on ‘Report page’ and choosing ‘Hate speech’ and its subcategory ‘Targets a race or ethnicity’ (which they include the royal family, nationality, humankind or race in their definition in Thai).

They also organize what they call ‘bomb reports’ in which they and their friends bombard Facebook staff with reports at an agreed time.

Thai Spring? If we look at a

Thai Spring?

If we look at a number of important issues such as lèse majesté, the political prisoners and the
influence of the Military, we can see the results of this new settlement. The Minister for Information
Technology and Communication and the Deputy Prime Minister have both announced that they will
be more vigorous in using the draconian lèse majesté law to crack down on dissenters. A special
War Room has been set up in order to do this. Lèse majesté prisoners such as Somyot
Pruksakasemsuk, Surachai Darnwattananusorn, Da Torpedo and many others are still in jail. Some
are awaiting trial and others have been found guilty by courts which favour the dictatorship and the
military. The Peua Thai government s defence of lèse majesté shows that it is prepared to accept the
continuing influence of the Military in politics and hopes that the Military and royalists will stop
accusing Taksin and Peua Thai of being against the Monarchy.

The observation is : with friends like these, who needs enemies?

Back to Tahrir Square If

Back to Tahrir Square

If there was a lesson to be learned from the ousting of Mubarak, it was that when the people’s demands are denied, the ceiling of their demands are raised.

The Egyptian Military has attempted to seize control of that country in the wake of Peoples' Power revolution there. The people are having none of it.

In Thailand the Royal Thai Military, in this case in the person of Group Captain Anudith Nakornthap of the Air Force, is attempting to seize control of the country in the wake of the peoples' victory in the July election.

"When the peoples' demads are denied, the ceiling of their demands are raised."
