PHUKET CITY: Encouraged by recent developments in the capital, local members of the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) say they will end their protest at Phuket Provincial Hall today.
Phuket PAD leader Natjarong Ekpermsup told the Gazette, “The government ordered a state of emergency in Bangkok, but the Thai military refused to disperse the protesters. This refusal of the military to follow PM Samak’s orders has caused the PAD movement to calm down. Today will be our last day at Provincial Hall. When everyone goes home tonight we will take down the tents, stage, screen and public address system and move everything to Saphan Hin, where we will continue to hold our evening gatherings as usual.”
