“Liu Xiaobo was a pacifist, a fighter, and a lover. Few can dispute that Liu was one ofthe most patriotic people in China … The non-violence championed by Liu in his protests for democracy and freedom continues to inspire many activists in Hong Kong after his tragic passing. What I have experienced as a political prisoner in nothing compared to what Liu Xiaobo had to go through, but served as source of light during my time in prison”
Joshua Wong, Political activist
This book dedicated to Liu Xiaobo, Liu Xia (his wife) and all fighters for freedom and democracy in China. You inspire us to keep fighting for genuine democracy in Thailand
“I Have No Enemies; Selected Essays of Liu Xiaobo” is the first book which collects Liu’s essay and exposes the dictatorship in China published in Thai.
I am pleased to inform you that “I Have No Enemies”, which had been together translating by me and my friends in Chulalongkorn University since last year, is now (November 2018) available.
There is no better time for this book to be published in Thai than now! This is the time when we are under junta prime minister, who was supported by Xi Jinping. Thai people should be aware and know what China are facing right now.
Every Thai people should read!

Today, we have a very special lecturer –Mr. Fahmi Reza, my fellow activist from Malaysia. He had received many awards such as the Most Outstanding Human Rights Film award for his documen
tary and the finalist for Freedom of Expressions award. However, he is not well-known among Thais. We are more familiar with other activists outside our ASEAN. In reality, the people of ASEAN bear many similar common grounds in our ways of lives, not to mention of abusing rights of people that is negative common which we has been shared. If we understand more about our neighbors, we would understand ourselves more easily. Similarly, if we learn more and work to understand how they are able to change their countries to be better, to overthrow corrupt regime in their country, then we might be able to do so in ours. Fahmi has a deep understanding also of our October 14th incident in 1973, which I think a lot of Thais not knowing it comparable to him.
He appreciated much our fighting in that day, and he said we were very fortunate to have this history – the victory of people. I hope this attitude shared with our fellow citizens nowadays. Today, there might not be too many people in this meeting room, but the whole session will be recorded. Today, in the historical perspective, will be another important day in our history. The talks he will give us now, the things he will say, everything will be of use to us, citizens of Thailand. Hereby, it is my great honor to present to you; my friend, Mr. Fahmi Reza
