Sanwiches are banned because the opposition are using sandwich parties to discuss the Coup.


What do sandwiches have to do with democracy? And why has the Hunger Games three-finger salute taken off in Thailand?

There have been 12 coups in recent history in Thailand. But the latest - three weeks ago - was the first in the social media age. The military rulers now in charge are monitoring social media closely - meaning those who oppose the new regime have had to get inventive.

The sandwich-eaters..

Sandwiches are not a particularly Thai food, but they've become very important in Thailand in the past few days. With political gatherings of more than five people banned, "sandwich parties" - organised via social media - have taken off. The first of these took place at Kasetsart University in Bangkok on 6 June.

State-run newspapers have warned people against eating sandwiches, and a senior police chief said they're keeping a close eye on the sandwich-eaters. Eating sandwiches is not illegal per se, he said, but if sandwich-eating is being used as a front - when the real intention is to criticise the coup - then that would be.

"Sandwiches" will soon be replaced by another "code word", joked some on social media. Sticky rice, anyone?
