Anti-government protesters in Bangkok have blockaded the city airports leading to massive transport disruption and unbearable inconveniences to the public in general and tourists in particular.
Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports are under siege by anti-government protesters that paralysed flights in and out of Bangkok.
The protesters are demanding the resignation of duly elected Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat alleging him to be a stooge of brother-in-law and former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.
The protest could not be termed peaceful as explosives had been used to cause damage and injury.Scores of people have been injured by the blasts.Police have refused to use force to disperse the crowd of protesters preferring negotiation instead.It's coming to a week now and no end is in sight that the protesters would budge from the impasse.Look like the army have to move in again.
It will have serious consequence on its tourism industry and economic development.No one would like to visit or invest in a country that is politically volatile.
Maybe, the Thai government should introduce the ISA ?
The question now is for those Malaysians who love to think demonstrations could solve problems for them to take a cue from what happened in Thailand.
