Use this form to send the letter below to the relevant authority (Minister of Foreign Affairs, Don Pramudwinai). You can add your own notes in a separate box after the standard text, if you wish.

I am writing to ask you to drop the charges against Netiwit Chotiphatphaisal and the thirty eight other people charged with sedition and violating the ban on public assembly.
Nonviolent protest is a crucial element of a thriving society. Thailand has ratified the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which protects freedom of expression and the right of peaceful assembly. We ask you respect these rights and drop the charges levelled at these peaceful protesters.
