    Great! They tell us that this happened in Phetchabun and even provide a map that doesn’t include Phetchabun on it. Oh well.

    Maybe this case can be a wake up for those that exploit migrant labor, that there is a point in which they don’t take it any more and get angry.

    Yeah, I also found that map slightly stupid.

    To be exact, it is here:
    http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=15.838252,101.081944&spn=0.060608,0.109863&t=h&z=14
    ….in Bueng Samphan district, a vast compound immediately north of highway no. 225 (Nakhon Sawan-Chaiyaphum).
    The reason I know that is because I passed there about a year ago on an alternative route to Isaan.
