The 'Hunger Games' salute has been adopted by angry Thai protestors
The famous silent three-finger salute from the hit Hunger Games movie series is being adopted by protestors in Thailand who are against the country's military coup.
Anti-coup protestor Sombat Boonngam-anong said on his Facebook page, "Raising three fingers has become a symbol in calling for fundamental political rights." He said that everyone should use the salute three times each day at 9 a.m., 1 p.m., and 5 p.m.
Thailand military officials are not pleased with the salute's emergence as a symbol of protest, warning that they will be forced to take action if a group of five or more people use the salute. Over the weekend, the military deployed almost 6,000 military personnel to thwart any protests in Bangkok against the coup. The salute is used in the Hunger Games movies as a symbol of rebellion against the totalitarian rule of the Capitol.
