Tools To Transform is now LIVE, here www.toolstotransform.net

Co-edited by 8 Asian grassroot networks, this workbook shares on-the-ground reflections, strategies and practices from 10 organisers and collectives working in relation to South, South-east and East Asian communities across Europe.

Tools to Transform is a free online resource, aimed at artists, curators, educators, community leaders and all others interested in organising in relation to Asian diasporas and building intra and inter-community solidarities. The workbook shares contributions including: conflict transformation, abolitionist approaches to Hate Crime, Asian and Black solidarity, queering care, and healing through food and ancestral knowledge.

We will launch Tools to Transform on Fri 21 May 11:00-12.30 BST/ 12:00-13.30 CET with a conversation exploring practices of intra and inter-community solidarity, with workbook contributors Claire Chou Doran, daikon*, Maya Bhardwaj and Vicky Truong; co-hosted by Asia Art Activism, Healing Justice and UnThaitled.

Tools to Transform contributors are Alexis Convento, Amal Khalaf, The Bitten Peach, Claire Chou Doran, daikon*, Jee Chan, Joyce Jiang, Maya Bhardwaj, Mo’Halla and Vicky Truong.
Tools to Transform was initiated by Asia Art Activism in partnership with DAMN*/Deutsche Asiat*innen, Make Noise!

Censorship in academia and regime of Othering (most of Sondhi's arguments are twist of tongue play with anti-US senstimental - but we all know US governments helped to install monarchy's power and presence in the first place)

Traditionalist Mindset: if Prayut wants it, Sondhi says it, then it must be good and true.
-----------------------------
The government can’t get away with abuses of power if the people don’t let it. But if the people are ready to throw a high-five and a chest-bump whenever the government stomps on liberty, then we have what we have in our beloved Thailand.

The Prayut Chan-o-cha Regime can count on half the country (generally speaking) to support it in whatever it does. As such, the Prayut Regime can get away with whatever it does.

From the military coup in 2014 to the military constitution in 2017 to the funny-calculator election in 2019 to the imprisonment of pro-democracy activists in 2021 and this week, when the Prayut Regime decided it’s time to throw academic David Streckfuss out of the kingdom.

Former yellow-shirt People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) leader Sondhi Limtongkul is not a supporter of the Prayut Regime but a supporter of the traditional establishment. Therefore, often, their interests align.

Sondhi is one of the most influential voices among Thailand’s traditionalists. A media veteran and a smooth and powerful talker, he knows exactly how to tell a story, and his show Sondhi Talk is the bible to Thailand’s traditionalists.

Professor David Streckfuss has been in Thailand for some three decades. He has a Ph.D. in Southeast Asian History from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is the country director of The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE).

He’s a professor at Khon Kaen University, wrote a book on the lese majeste law, is an author at The Isaan Recorder, and an active human rights activist.

Recently, immigration police went to meet with the university rector. After the meeting was done, it was decided, the university will no longer give a work permit to Professor Streckfuss. (Because, you know, standing up for academic freedom isn’t really a thing around here.)

Professor Streckfuss became the latest casualty in the Prayut Regime’s slash-and-burn policy against dissenting voices.

As usual, the progressive voices in Thailand cry foul, while the traditionalist voices yell “chai-yo!” and why wouldn’t they?

Sondhi explained why Professor Streckfuss must get booted from the Kingdom. Here are some quotes from Sondhi:

“He’s a former CIA agent embedded in Khon Kaen University for 27 years.”

“I’m not surprised why so many Khon Kaen University professors are of the mindset to overthrow the monarchy institution.”

“David Streckfuss is a secret American CIA agent behind the Isan Region’s movement to overthrow the monarchy.”

“David Streckfuss is behind Pai Daodin.”
[Pai is a leading pro-democracy activist currently jailed on lese majeste charges.]

“David Streckfuss requested a grant from the NED. Do you remember the NED? It’s a branch of the State Department. It’s the civilian version of the CIA. It’s called the National Endowment for Democracy.”

Thus, the conclusion is obvious.

Put “CIA” and “overthrow the monarchy” together, keep repeating the name “David Streckfuss,” and voila, to Thailand’s traditionalists, this must be true.

Therefore, David Streckfuss must be booted out of the kingdom.

Now, combine all the pro-government media and influencers together, have them all repeat the same thing, over and over.

The result is, the Prayut Regime gets away with whatever it does because half of the country (generally speaking) supports whatever it does.

Myanmese genocide continues, as the Karen ethnic groups, along with others such as Shan and Kachin, have been attacked and killed constantly.

Few days ago, there has been for also 100 DEATHS reported happening only in one day.

Influx of refugees has arrived in Thailand. We hope that Thai officials will carry the responsibility, as the neighbour nation, as the common people, and because their regime has directly supported the Myanese genocidal regime.

We beg the world to keep close eyes on Myanmese and Thai governments.

Non Native Native Fair (Rotterdam/Berlin, digital, 26-27 June 2021)

Non Native Native is a cultural platform which looks into the Asian creative landscape in The Netherlands through the lens of the outsiders from within. The platform serves as an alternative point of exchange for critical creative practitioners between the Asian and European cultural landscape with the focus on contemporary visual culture.

For this edition, co-curated with Soydivision and un.thai.tled, we are looking for projects which investigate the relationships and positions of Asian diasporas in Europe represented as exchangeable goods to be showcased at the NNN FAIR. This can be an artwork, publication, product, service, performance, crowdfunding project, or anything that you would like to introduce as a subject of market exchange, an alternative narrative as well as an instrument for deepening dialogues on Asia. Applicants are invited to propose a concept of their products and background story. Selected exhibitors will be invited to broadcast their presentation from WORM Rotterdam during the Fair. (26–27 June 2021)

The selection of participating exhibitors will be announced on 20 April 2021 on our website.

👀 NON NATIVE NATIVE is proud to present the NON NATIVE NATIVE FAIR!

NON NATIVE NATIVE FAIR is a 2-day experimental hybrid event that brings together Asian creative cultural practitioners from various backgrounds and disciplines to present their work and products in an online trade fair environment. By repurposing the concept of an “Asian cultural fair” — a collage of elements which represent Asian culture — the NNN Fair examines the positions and relationships of Aliens within the Dutch cultural landscape by blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction, appreciation and appropriation, labour and play

Founder of Silom’s Bangkok Screening Room discusses the last days of the indie cinema and the future of film

Since opening in 2016, the theater had screened everything from classics like Peter Brook’s “Lord of the Flies” and Hollywood cult favorites like David Fincher’s “Fight Club” to modern Thai classics like “The Story of Nampu” and documentaries on Vivienne Westwood and internet meme Pepe the Frog. Sarinya “Mew” Manamuti, one of the three co- founders of the Bangkok Screening Room, recalls that the most popular film over the past four-plus years was, oddly enough, “Ants on the Shrimp,” a documentary about chef Rene Redzepi of Noma.

“When we first opened, we screened everything from fashion documentaries to classic films, [but] we didn’t know this one was going to be such a hit,” she admits. “The tickets were sold out for almost every showing. Food is clearly something that a lot of people are interested in.”

These special selling points were off the table for much of 2020, however, as Covid-19 upended the Bangkok Screening Room’s otherwise steady business. As cinemas across Thailand were forced to close in March and April last year, the Bangkok Screening Room began offering voucher packs to drive sales. But the losses mounted as social distancing restrictions and two separate bans on the sale of alcohol took their toll on sales.

Despite it all, Mew still believes cinemas like hers can make it in Bangkok. “First of all, it takes funding,” she says. “For example, The Projector in Singapore got support right away, as soon as the city announced the lockdown. In Australia, you can just go to the local council and apply for grants. The support is always there. But here, we got zero support from government programs. I feel that the system needs to change, like having a new government that supports the arts.”

That means financial support that isn’t just earmarked for times of crisis.

As one of the city’s last hubs for indie flicks and film geeks readies to shut for good, we sat down with one of its founders to find out what went down, look back at their greatest moments, and discuss whether there’s hope for the future of independent cinemas in Thailand.

Check our talk http://bit.ly/3ukk17O - between Sarnt Utamachote and Rosalia Namsai Engchuan - at NUS Museum as a part of "Turf Wars" programme by Phoebe Phua :

"...the gaps in understanding what this space is led to a lot of unfortunate developments in how the space is governed by the city; [we saw] how it is constantly forced to be legible, to be read, to be understood...[how] this kind of organic, diasporic form of organisation and community just needed to be translated, which is a very very violent act.”

Where we mentioned how we approach migrant space, Thai diaspora in German context and exhibition "Beyond the kitchen: Stories from the Thai Park" (Berlin) as well as "There is no Thai park" (Bangkok, curated by Abhijan Toto).

2021 TIME100 Next: Arnon Nampa

Arnon has energized young Thais with his demands to strip political power from the historically sacrosanct royal family and shred the military-drafted constitution. As a result, he has been arrested three times in recent months and charged with sedition. But as COVID-19 continues to impact Thailand’s tourism-reliant economy, more young people are joining demonstrations that are already the biggest since the 2014 coup d’état—which experts say is pressuring the military-led government into a corner. “People are sick and tired of living under a repressive regime,” he told TIME late last year. —Charlie Campbell

Hundreds of people are volunteering to escort elderly Asian Americans to help keep them safe

As the global pandemic, global discrimination and global authoritarian regimes keep on spreading, communities' action and solidarity are the keys - for now - to counteract those.

This action doesn't only take place in the states but can be seen around the globe; when the neighbours and everyone understands one's possible role in the social justice and well-being of each other.

Let's learn from them.

Jacob Azevedo's stomach turned as he watched a disturbing video of an 84-year-old Thai American man who was fatally shoved to the ground on a sidewalk in San Francisco.
