PAD paralyzes traffic upon return to Makkhawan bridge

July 8th, 2008 - 11:41 am ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi  

The atmosphere at the Makkhwan bridge this morning saw only a few People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) members stationed in the area after yesterday’s court order to open roads from 5AM to 6PM, saw the group moving away from the Government House back to their original protest site.

Speeches and usual activity have kicked off for most of the morning. Despite the reduced numbers of demonstrators, their sudden travel to the area has all but paralyzed traffic on the outer Ratchadamnoen road.
