Thai democracy activists held a sombre commemoration of the 1976 Thammasat University massacre on October 10 on the steps of Sydney Town Hall.

The brutal massacre, carried out by the military and right-wing militia members against student activists, involved the murder of a large number of students and the detention of more than 3000.

This commemoration served as a warning about threats from the military regime in Thailand to violently suppress a resurgent student-led mass democracy movement planning its next major mobilisation on October 14.
