As forest residents evicted in Thailand, rights to protest and access information restricted

The Thai military junta is urged to cease forced evictions, arbitrary arrests and detention, and intimidation of residents in six forest villages in Buriram province. In one case, soldiers arrested Sornram Masuntei and detained him for about 10 hours after he requested information from local military commanders about whether certain eviction orders would affect residents who were poor and landless.
