July 27, 2022
King Vajiralongkorn was born on 28 July 1952. There will be a nationwide celebration of his birthday tomorrow. Already pro-democracy groups have talked of wearing black as a sign of protest against the monarchy. But exactly how wearing black could be illegal has not been elaborated. Possibly, they would be charged with lese-majeste for defaming King Vajiralongkorn. Meanwhile, in recent weeks, King Vajiralongkorn has seemed to disappeared from the public sight provoking a rumour of him falling ill or even being dead by some segments of Thai society.
