Write for Rights 2021: Rung Panusaya | Amnesty Australia



Once a shy, quiet teenager, Panusaya – known as “Rung”, meaning
“rainbow” – has become a leading voice in Thailand’s democracy movement.
The university student, a vocal proponent for equality and the right to
freedom of expression, opposes the use of the lèse-majesté law to silence
government critics. In March 2021, the authorities jailed her for 60 days
under this law. She went on hunger strike for 38 days and was released.
Today, she faces dozens of charges against her and life imprisonment.

Amnesty International is campaigning for Thailand to drop all charges against Rung.
