Those of you who have been reading New Mandala for at least a couple of weeks will recall that one of our posts (this one here) was recently blocked in Thailand. Since yesterday we have been receiving sporadic reports that this photo-essay by Nick Nostitz is also blocked in the kingdom.

It is only a few days ago that Nick himself talked to Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva about his recent experiences photographing in Bangkok and, in particular, the shooting of Red Shirt protesters at Rajaprarop.

Surely, there’s no connection.
