Protest banners reveal resident’s names – Chiang Mai

Published

 on 

The ongoing battle between protesters and residents of housing inside a controversial residential area on the foothills of Dom Suthem in Chiang Mai, has taken a new tack.

Banners revealing the names of appeal court officials who live at the controversial housing estate at the foot of forested Doi Suthep mountain were found in Chiang Mai yesterday.

The Doi Suthep Forest Reclamation Network, persistent protesters over the housing development, denies any involvement in the banners.

The municipality removed the banners from near Tha Phae and Chang Pheuk gates, both popular tourist sites, according to deputy mayor Natchudech Wiriyadiloktham.

The banners said in Thai…

“Trampling on the hearts of Chiang Mai, dismissing the community rights and disrespecting Doi Suthep” along with the list of name. The banners were erected on Wednesday night.

The Doi Suthep Forest Reclamation network’s co-ordinator Teerasak Rupsuwan said his group had nothing to do with the move, as it focused on reclaiming the site via legal procedures.

He said the act might have been sparked by comments from the PM’s office minister Suwaphan Tanyuvardhana. The minister said some outsiders might want the housing estate preserved and that they needed 30 more days to find a solution. Tears believed the comments might have angered some people who have access to the court staff names.
