I’ve just uploaded some pictures from the protests in Hat Yai this afternoon. I got some video footage too which I will get up soon. We went out purposefully looking for the protests (much to the horror of my mother!) but all we could find was a student rally. We followed the convoy of students through the city, horns tooting, whistles blowing and girls most definitely screaming with excitement. They stopped at the TV station Channel 11, where it appears they were planning on staging a protest similar to the shutdowns and sit ins taking place in Bangkok. I’m not sure if they really knew what they were protesting about or if it was just a reason to take the day off school!
See my previous posts for the pictures. More to come tomorrow as the hunt for the protests continues (sorry Mum…).
