      ภาพยนต์ Hunger Games คือเรื่องราวการกดขี่ของผู้นำเผด็จการ ของประเทศในจินตนาการที่ชื่อชื่อว่า Panem ซึ่งถูกแบ่งเป็น District ต่างๆ คือเขตแต่ละเขตที่มีหน้าที่เพียงผลิตผลต่างๆส่ง ไปยัง Capitol อันร่ำรวยโดยไม่มีสิทธิ์ตั้งคำถามใดๆ หนำซ้ำยังถูกหลอกให้เป็นสุขในชีวิตที่พอเพียงของตนทำ หน้าที่ผลิตไป ไม่ควรหือหรือเรียกร้องใดๆต่อ Capitol

      แต่มนุษย์ย่อมต้องการเสรีภาพ จึงเป็นที่มาของฉากชู 3 นิ้วอันเป็นสัญลักษณ์ของความหวังและการต่อต้านอำนาจเ ผด็จการ ซึ่งในการต่อต้านรัฐประหาร 22 พฤษภาคมในไทย ก็ได้มีการจับกุมประชาชนที่ออกมาชู 3 นิ้วต่อต้านรัฐประหาร

      และในวันนี้ได้มีการเปิดตัวภาพยนต์ Hunger Games รอบ World Premier ณจตุรัสเลสเตอร์ กรุงลอนดอน ประเทศอังกฤษ จึงมีชาวไทยกลุ่มหนึ่งแสดงสัญลักษณ์ชู 3 นิ้ว และ ‪#‎DistrictThai‬ เพื่อบอกกับคนทั้งโลกว่า การกดขี่ของเผด็จการนั้น ไม่ใช่เพียงในโลกภาพยนต์ แต่เกิดขึ้นจริงที่นี่ #DistrictThai
      People of #DistrictThai show three finger salute, at The Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part I World Premier at Leicester Square, in London.

      #DistrictThai hopes to raise international awareness on the current oppression faced by the Thai people after an autocratic military regime took over control of Thailand in May 2014.

      Since then the Thai people have adopted the Hunger Games 3 finger salute as peaceful symbol to oppose the military regime, as do people in Panem facing oppression by the Capitol.

        Thai Students Detained, 'Hunger Games' Screening Axed

        Thai police detained three university students at Bangkok cinemas today while at least two theatres in the junta-ruled nation cancelled opening screenings of The Hunger Games.

        A female student was escorted out of a cinema in a high-end mall in the capital after flashing the three-finger salute from the films -- an unofficial symbol of resistance against the army's May coup -- while police detained two other students, who did not appear to be protesting, outside a nearby cinema.

        "Two students are under interrogation at the police station," Colonel Kittikorn Boonsom of Bangkok Metropolitan Police told AFP.

        "The third detainee is a female student nabbed in front of Siam Paragon's cinema because she flashed an anti-government sign several times," he said.

        The army wants to hold "talks" with the female student, said Kittikorn, adding: "She may be taken to the army camp for attitude adjustment."

        The detentions come after five other students were briefly held by the military Wednesday for flashing the three-finger sign during a speech by Thai Premier Prayut Chan-O-Cha in the northeastern province of Khon Kaen.

        Earlier today around 20 police officers, surrounded by dozens of journalists, gathered outside the Scala cinema in downtown Bangkok where the theatre had cancelled showings of the latest Hunger Games film.

        There were a few students milling around but no protests, according to an AFP reporter at the scene.

        Ratthapol Supasopon, one of the two detained male students who said he was part of a Facebook group giving away free tickets for the film, was taken away by police after speaking to journalists.

        "It is just an activity to watch a movie. We will not show the three fingers," said the Thammasat University student.

        "Everyone is afraid to do or to say something wrong. Today, in Thailand, we don't have freedom anymore," he said before being driven away.

        The other male student detained at the cinema was seen carrying a copy of George Orwell's anti-authoritarian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four.

        Kittikorn confirmed it was the same man who had been arrested five months earlier after reading the novel while eating a sandwich.

            This is truly frightening

              Really? what else would you expect from a country that aspires to copy the North Korean evil empire model.
