Taxi driver hangs himself in protest against coup
A Thai taxi driver appears to have commited suicide and left a suicide note shown above.
A report of this incident can be found in the Bangkok Post see here where it is stated that the note says "I am a taxi driver who has sacrificed himself for democracy". He had previously come to the attention of the media on the 30th September when having painted his purple taxi with the words, "Destroy the country" and "Suicide" he deliberately slammed his taxi into a tank.
