Khrong Chandawong, Communist Party of Thailand,Sawang Daen Din,Sakon Nakhon,Thailand

I have been aware of the 70s and  the Communist Party of Thailand for years. I know both westerners and Thais who experienced the events of that period. I spent time with General Surayud some years ago and am familiar with his and his family’s role in that period. I am also aware that when he became prime Minister he finally made good on some of the government promises from more than 30 years before. The rise and fall of the Communist Party of Thailand tells some of the story. Recently I read about  Khrong Chandawong and Thongphan Suthimat and their execution in  in  Sawang Daendin district of Sakon Nakhonin the article Khrong Chandawong Remembered in New Mandela. So while Larry and I were in town chasing Seri Thai sites


I started to search for the site. Visits to the police station, district office, school and back to the police station led us to the post in the photograph another downgrade so it seems. Due to the need to press on we did not have time for further investigation at the time. But I do plan on stopping back and chatting with Khrong’ son Vichit who I understand still lives nearby and getting what more information about the time, people and places of that era in Northeast Thailand,Isaan
