Relato dos protestos na Tailândia
Gaëlle Krikorian, a participant in the protests working with Thai AIDS activists, described the situation this way:
"Today, about 8,000 people were demonstrating in Chiang Mai. In front of the Sheraton hotel, people were demanding that the negotiating teams send representatives to tell them what exactly they are negotiating. Nit Pibulsongkram, the head of the Thainegotiating team came out surrounded by police and said that this is the wish of the 'elected government' to do this agreement for the benefit of the country. People trying to enter the hotel were beaten by the police. 30 people tried to swim across the river to reach the hotel and were beaten too."
