Artist: Veera Prateepchaikul


Confronting Bodies: The Bangkok Post administration and government officials


Dates of Action: February 2004


Location: Bangkok, Thailand


Description of Artwork: Veera Prateepchaikul wrote a bold headline in The Bangkok Post referring to a statement from Thai king, Bhumibol Adulyadej's, speech that warned of Prime Minister, Thaksin Shinawatra's, arrogance.

The Incident: Shortly after printing the controversial headline Veera was moved from his position as editor to another job in the corporation that manages the paper.

Results of Incident: Many journalists have spoken out against the move. Although the paper claimed that the move was merely "a structural matter of organization," many journalists believe it is a government action to control the critical press. Journalists and editors have testified that they have recieved phone calls from critical government officials.
