Thailand

The 14 October 1973 Memorial near the Democracy Monument (fig.) in Bangkok is dedicated to the 77 people that lost their lives at the hands of the security forces during the October '73 uprising near Thammasat University (fig.), in which students and other citizens alike flocked into the streets to demand 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.
