  Anuson Satahn 14 Tulah

 

Thailand

The 14 October 1973 Memorial near the Thammasat University is dedicated to the 77 people that lost their lives at the hands of the security forces during the October '73 uprising, in which students and other citizens alike demanded democracy.

 

The uprising brought about the end of the then ruling military dictatorship and altered the Thai political system. The memorial consists of a tapered cube base with a cone-shaped peak, similar to the plong shanai (fig.) of most chedi.
