Bangkok Protest Post 2 - Getting Ready

Finally, the signs were coming out. Some had to be put onto poles.

The pickup with the loud speakers - a necessity in Thailand - arrived.

One of the issues my organization is working on is the rights of farmers living 'in the forest.' There are a number of different situations. This man is making the point that while they have designated where he lives a forest area, he and his family planted all the rubber trees that the Government claims is a forest.

This is a student from Ramkamhaeng University here to see what was happening.
