More from the same article:

This move to shut down online dissent follows the Thai authorities' declaration of a state of emergency yesterday as thousands of demonstrators took to the streets to demand the government's resignation.

Thai prime minister, Samak Sundaravej, announced sweeping curbs to civil liberties to maintain calm, after which the ICT Ministry said it had detected more than 1,200 websites that violated the Computer Crime Act.

When people in other countries, so called democratic nations, protest, will our governments treat us the same way? Are we already being treated the same for "preventative" reasons??
I wonder whether ATS ot BTS have been put on the Ban List?
