I toiled about whether to promote this video as it is extremely gory. But it is so important that we get the message out far and wide when people are killed for standing up for what they believe in.

In this video (which again is extremely graphic) an unarmed Thai civilian protesting his government is killed by armed forces.

His own government killed him for opposing them. As someone who is very outspoken on a lot of issues, there almost nothing more disturbing than seeing an innocent person killed for speaking out.

The video was posted over a month ago, but it has had very few views and most of them only in Thailand and Southeast Asia, so I thought I would push it out in light of the ever-rising body count of more innocent people in Thailand being killed by Thai government forces.

Please consider carefully before you view this video:
