National Edition News cover for November 23, 2014 - Thais protest with ‘Hunger Games’ hand gesture: Nachacha Kongudom, 21, raises a three-finger salute outside a cinema where “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1” is showing, in Bangkok, Thailand, Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014. Police detained three students Thursday at the opening of the latest "Hunger Games" movie in Thailand, where opponents of May’s military coup have adopted the film’s three-finger salute as a sign of defiance. The military-imposed government has banned the gesture, which symbolizes rebellion against totalitarian rule in the film series. One cinema chain in the country's capital canceled all screenings of the movie ahead of its Thursday opening after a student group planned an anti-coup protest outside one of its theaters. Activists say police pressured the chain to halt the showings. (AP Photo/Sakchai Lalit)
