#Bangkok - Why aren’t tourists returning to Khao San Road ?
The past few years have been dark for tourism in Thailand and around the world. The Covid-19 global pandemic closed borders and killed tourism in so many crucial areas. Khao San Road, the vibrant, bustling backpacker haven of Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok quickly fell into a desolate ghost town. Now, the last pandemic restrictions have been lifted, and the government is constantly reporting floods of international tourists bringing Thailand back to life. But vendors on Khao San Road say they’re just not seeing the tourism numbers that were predicted even as all Covid restrictions have been lifted.

Riot police clashed with protestors at Asoke Intersection in #Bangkok this afternoon as world leaders gather in the Thai capital for the APEC Summit 2022.
Due to road closures, the intersection is the closest the public can get to the summit which is being held at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre from November 16-19.
Police ramped up security in the city in preparation for the meeting and riot police were deployed in anticipation of protests.
The demonstration held in Asoke outside the entrance of Sukhumvit MRT Station today was entitled, “What’s Happening In Thailand?”

THAILAND - Following the reinstatement of General Prayut Chan-o-cha as Prime Minister by the Constitutional Court yesterday, anti-Prayut activists have called a mass demonstration at the Victory Monument on Saturday to show their contempt for the court’s wisdom.
Led by activist Thatchapong Kaedam and dressed in black, a contemptuous crowd of Ratsadon movement members gathered at Pathumwan skywalk in front of Bangkok Art and Culture Centre on Friday afternoon to hear the verdict. Thatchapong called the decision a “slap in the face for the nation.”

Laat de liefde elke vorm van dictatuur overwinnen
Op welke manieren kun je van je lief worden gescheiden? De dood? De gevangenis? Of door spoorloze verdwijning? De partner van Min Thalufa werd eind september zijn vrijheid afgenomen door de autoriteiten, zonder recht op borgtocht. Deze brief is een strijdkreet die ze verstuurde aan haar liefje in de #Bangkok Remand Prison. Ze hoopt dat hij de gelegenheid krijgt hem te lezen.
