Same Difference: Equinox to Equinox
– A day of Public Action for Freedom and democracy.

“It is the day that all states must recognise and allow actions from the people which are ‘peaceful’ and ‘non-violent’. This day of action can be with or without context, but for the recognition of all people’s rights to share the public space together, in solidarity with each other, in respect of each others rights to share the same public space, as well as the time.” – Chumpon Apisuk
