Thaksin's Revenge - April 9, 2009

Misma writes: Here are photos from 9th of April at the road between Rama IV intersection with Sukhumvit and the Phrakanong intersection (Sukhumvit 71). The red shirts blocked that piece of road around 7pm and up until when these photos were taken at 11pm at least. The traffic was fully congested along the Sukhumvit at least from Ploenchit onwards towards On Nut. I sat in a bus for 2 hours from Ploenchit to Phrakanong... argh.

The amount of protestors has gone down. They arrived to Prakhanong around 7pm and at 9pm had "festival" going on but by 11pm it had already calmed down and few people were present holding the barricades.

Police presence is very small. Only about 6 in total. Police and volunteer rescue workers are directing the traffic.
