Life has imitated art in Thailand. Protestors against the Thai military coup have been spotted using a three-finger salute popularized by The Hunger Games as a real form of resistance. The gesture appeared over the weekend as protestors gathered to oppose the military takeover of Thailand’s elected government.
“If a single individual raises three fingers in the air, we are not going to arrest him or her,” Col. Weerachon Sukhondhapatipak, a spokesman for the junta, told The Associated Press. “But if it is a political gathering of five people or more, then we will have to take some action. If it persists, then we will have to make an arrest.”
