Thai Protest Blocks Summit Meeting


www.nytimes.com

PATTAYA, Thailand — A summit meeting of East Asian leaders intended to address the economic crisis and regional issues got off to a rocky start Friday when hundreds of protesters blocked the main entrance to the convention center where leaders were gathering.

The demonstrators left the grounds of the summit in the early evening Friday, but only after columns of military and police units had rushed to protect the hotel and convention center.

The disturbance offered leaders a close-up look at the political discord that is wrenching Thailand, some of it fueled by the economic crisis. Bangkok has been the scene of massive demonstrations against the prime minister in recent days.

please close the thread if it was already posted (I was trying to search but have not found it).

that is a spirit. as I heard on news some of the asian leaders were evacuated by copters.

I can see people in Asia are getting more and more angry. there are actually protests going on in Russia, Georgia, China, Thailand, Korea, Pakistan. there are a tensions between the asian countries - Thailand/Cambodia, India/Pakistan, Israel/Palestine. there is war going on in Afghanistan and Iraq. there are nukes. there is unsolved "problem" of Iran. there is Israel.

and they do not care about the life as the western people. the violence is familiar with their culture. and here I can see a danger to unrest going out of any control and causing the domino effect worldwide.

Well they're reporting now that the meeting has been canceled because of the protests.

CNN

The Thais are good at this stuff, forced a change in their government last year if I remember right. Seems like the rest of the world is way ahead of the curve..
