Students’ satirical parade lives up to expectations
Chulalongkorn and Thammasat University students took the opportunity at the traditional football match between the country’s two oldest universities on Saturday to mock prominent political figures.
The students used the pre-game parade to satirise the luxury watch scandal involving Defence Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan.
They also targetted what they saw as double standards in the judicial system and the use of special powers under section 44 of the interim constitution by Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha.
The inequality of opportunities and income between the leaders of big business and ordinary people was also mocked by caricatures used in the parade.
