The campaign is called ‘We Are Hero’.
Natalia posted the announcement on social media.
‘Everyone in this country is a hero,’ they said.
‘We all go through bad times together and get through conflict together.
‘Today we want Thai people to know they are all heroes.
‘We believe we can solve the conflict.
‘Today we have to hold hands and fight the outside world.
‘Time’s up on conflict. We need to fight the ones who cause it.
‘Today we have to come together and unite all Thai power together.’
