A New Fort Mahakarn for the People

Above: Closeup of the sign

The sign reads: Thank for returning the area of [yellow] ‘Mahakarn Fort’ [orange] A historic site with value for all people
Bottom right: City of happiness

[This sign put by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (its logo is at the top left of the sign) to thank the local community for giving up their homes so the area can be turned in a public park to attract tourists. This plan has been resisted by local people for years.]
