I’m no conflict journalist. Well, not in this conflict anyway. The opportunity for sensational photography is certainly tempting, but for some reason I just haven’t been compelled to go out and get amongst it.
Today it was unavoidable… 150,000 people marched through the streets of Bangkok on their way to Government House. Only 150 metres from my house was a line of peaceful protesters stretching as far as I could see in either direction.
Someone theorised that todays march was a world record for volume of people in peaceful protest. I wonder though what will happen tonight when the smiling people go home. When the sun goes down and the angry people remain.
