In a powerful statement of strength and rebellion, Thai protesters have taken to adopting what I’d call a powerful symbol within the Hunger Games world — the three finger salute.
Talk about fiction to reality.
As you can see in this tweet from Manik Sethisuwan, there is a real struggle going on in Thailand and as an act of protest, the people have spoken.
The protest is in regards to a recent takeover of the Thai civilian government by the military. Various policies have been put into place since the takeover (i.e. curfews & banning of public gathering over five people).
If Thai civilians were looking to get more attention and focus onto the issue, then it was smart of them to take a well-loved franchise, which also stands for rebellion and protesting the government, and use it for their real-life struggle.
Stay strong, Thailand.
