The officials at the Mae Faluang Ampuf office, Chiangrai, Thailand are telling all the parents who come in to register the births of their children that they must use a Thai name even though they are not Thai by race or heritage. (This is Thailand after all).
This is highly racist and illegal, to force hilltribe peoples to take a Thai name and obscure their identity and force assimilation in every area of their life.
This is the same country that now heads the WTO for the next two years, and that wants to head the WHO in asia.
Thailand needs to be treated as it treats others for a while.
All aid to Thailand needs to be based on how they treat the hilltribe and other marginalized communities.
Thailand's fascination with things Nazi are no mistake.
