October 14 anniversary

October 14 anniversary - October 12, 2003
People are gathering at Sanam Luang to commemorate the
30th anniversary of the October 14, 1973 student uprising that toppled the dictatorship. Apparently the authorities are "offering no resistance" despite an earlier ban on using Sanam Luang for the event.
