Strikes!

There are many reports about strikes and protests these day. Bangkok Post headline “Trucker Strike” in the headline, then Farmers block road in garlic price protest and Nidhi Eoseewong said something about pressuring policy makers through protest in “Space race.” Other protests I heard of is paddy farmers and cabbage growers.

It is likely that according to Nidhi (op.cit.) “Public streets are one such type of “space”. They are quite effective, too, when used to generate pressure – again a given in the process of negotiation.”

I hope that all protesters for their causes will not branded “PAD supporters” to destabilized the government.

While PAD might protest for their “ideology,” other that protest for their real livelihood should not be ignored.
