Quiet atmosphere at PAD rallyJuly 11th, 2008 - 2:08 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
The anti-government demonstration of the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) at Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge earlier today (July 11th) was not very active, as there were very few people attending the rally.
Some of the few demonstrators were taking a nap in tents set up along Ratchadamnoen Nok Road, while others were cooperatively cleaning up the venue. At the same time, the traffic lanes and intersections at the demonstration site were congested this morning, as many motorists and commuters had no choice and needed to pass through the area.
