Without co-operation, everyone loses

We may fight to win,

but we will always lose

But if we fight together

we will win together

ROYAL SPEECH:

HOOBKRAPONG AGRICULTURAL

CO-OPERATIVE SATURDAY, 27TH MAY, 1978

BASED ON THE BEST-SELLING NOVEL

WINNER - JOHN F KENNEDY AWARD

FOR LITERATURE, 1973

This is the story of an ethnic group

that lived in 757 AD.

The rulers of the country regarded them

as mere uncivilized barbarians

They were exploited and persecuted

and driven from their homes,

until their only choice

was to flee the country.

They sought a new homeland

where they could live in peace and freedom.

The people of Ler,

Khanu, Yuro, Dtai, and Thanai

were united in their quest for freedom

Many died from disease

or from the many perils they faced.

But they met each challenge

with determination and courage,

and vowed to maintain their bond forever.

ADAPTED BY NIRATTISAI KALJARUEK

AND PINYO KRONGTHONG

The problems began when

the Qin Dynasty came to rule.

The mighty Han army

exercised its power ruthlessly.

It conquered new territory and expanded

into areas occupied by free ethnic tribes.

The people of these areas

were forced to take up arms

to defend their land.

It was the land where they were born

and where their ancestors were buried.

Gumpawa!

Mother!

Run away now!

Or the Han will make you a slave.

Mother!

When the Han army had taken the land,

it was stained

with the blood and tears of its people.

Tai child!

Come with me!

Burn it all!

The Han army was enormous,

and its military strength was unstoppable.

The people of the Cheung Dao valley

were either killed or

forced to flee in different directions.

THE EDGE OF THE EMPIRE

FOR THE LAND - A FINAL STAND!

20 years later

the children who had survive

were now grown up.

They lived in six separate regions.

But they awaited the day

when they could be reunited,

a day when their nation could be reborn

a day when they could be united in peace

under the name Thai,

a word meaning "free".

They dreamed of a day when

they could be free in their own land.

And free from the oppression of the Han.

Now, Ler City.

Stop the carriage!

Next up...

Lamphun!

From Ler City.

Come on! Quickly! It's your turn.

Come on! Quickly! It's your turn.

Never mind that! Come on!

Get them, Lamphun!

Next up...

Jotan!

I see you allow them to fight with weapons.

Don't you think that's unwise, Tiewliang?

It can only encourage insubordination.

These people come together

from six different regions.

They openly display their skills and weapons.

It's surely better than letting them

hide their skills

and weapons from us. Right, Libong?

Is there anyone else who wants to take on

Lamphun from Ler City?

Is there anyone?

How about you

Not me! It's much too scary! No way!

If there are no more challengers,

then you get the prize!

Give it back!

If you meant it,

you have to fight my brother first!

If you want the prize so badly...

come and get it from me!

My name is Libong.

I'm Tiewliang's new military adviser.

I am here under orders of Emperor Qin,

ruler of this land.

I want all you peasants to know who I am.

Peasants, eh?

I see we have a peasant here

who thinks he's a fighter, right?

Soldiers!

Get him!

Stop!

Hurry up, Buakham.

Do you want to play with Guchin? Let's go!

Prepare the carriage.

Are you ever going

to stop making those swords?

You've already got

the sharpest swords around.

I need them to be sharp,

and I need to keep making them.
