Somyot Prueksakasemsuk is a Thai journalist, pro-democracy activist, and trade unionist who spent seven years in jail for his magazine’s dissident political views. In a country where the military and the rich elite rule with brutality and bloodshed, and where opposition to the regime frequently leads to draconian prison sentences, Somyot’s courage and defiance have been a beacon for many. After his 2018 release, Somyot has spoken out internationally but Marxism 2019 will be his first appearance in Australia. Socialist Alternative are honoured to be co-hosting him with AAWL.
