Bangkok Post: Archive showcases horrors of Thammasat massacre

Bangkok Post: Archive showcases horrors of Thammasat massacre. “Former student activists and academics have teamed up to set up an online archive on the Thammasat massacre of Oct 6, 1976 to raise awareness and ensure that the public understands and remembers the tragedy….On that fateful day, soldiers and police, along with paramilitary forces, surrounded the Thammasat University campus in Tha Prachan and killed scores of student activists who had gathered to oppose the return of Field Marshal Thanom Kittikachorn, the former dictator who was overthrown and fled the country after a popular uprising on Oct 14, 1973.” The Web site is in Thai but Google Translate handles it.
