Occupy Bangkok: 17 Jan 2014

The junction between Rama IV Road and Sathorn Road still opened only one lane in the morning like yesterday. There was a set of tires (with more serious look) and guards blocked two lanes of Thai – Belgium bridge.

A group of protesters cars and motocycles passed this barrier in the afternoon. The leading car said “Sorry for the traffic jam but it is worthwhile to get rid of Thaksin’s root in Thailand” via his megaphone.
