Once a shy, quiet teenager, Panusaya - known as "Rung" which means
"Rainbow" - has become a leading voice in the Thai democracy movement.
The college student, a vocal advocate of equality and the right to
Freedom of expression, opposes the application of the law of libel of majesty to silence
Government critic. In March 2021, the authorities detained her for 60 days
according to this law. She went on a hunger strike for 38 days and was released.
Today she faces dozens of charges and life imprisonment.

Amnesty International is working to have Thailand drop all charges against Rung.
