In his Facebook post on Saturday (December 28), he said his party had begun 2019 with hope and faced challenges in its first election, and ended the year as a witness of people’s bravery against the government’s injustice.
“In this year, there were numerous stories to remember, several mistakes to learn from, many successes to be proud of, and abundant encouragements to thank for,” he said.
Thanathorn thanked people for every bottle of water his party members had received while running the party campaign, as well as those flowers, smiles, drawings, letters, presents, and internet comments they had gained during the year.
“We thank you and appreciate everything you gave us,” he said. “These things indicate that we did not struggle alone. There are many people who will fight and walk with us until we remove the tears of those who are suffering, and bring back democracy.”
Thanathorn wished everyone and their families a happy New Year and urged all to stay together. “I wish all of you safety in travelling back home and be encouraged there,” he said. “You have to be prepared, for yourself and your loved ones, to live [lives] as valuable and meaningful as possible in 2020.”
