Chiang Mai residents who are against judges’ housing project at Doi Suthep foothill plan to demonstrate at the Tha Pae town’s gate in the northern city on Sunday as a show of force to demand the return of the land back to Mother Nature.

 

One group of about 20 opponents against the housing project, the Maeping watershed conservation group led by Mr Nikhom Putsa, arrived in front of the Region 5 Appeals Court at about noon Saturday after a marathon walk from Chiang Dao district.

 

The group observed a moment of silence in front of the sign board of the court as a monk who joined the group in the marathon walk chanted prayers.

Two activists walk 100km to join Chiang Mai protest over court housing

By The Nation

 

An environmentalist and a monk walked 100 kilometres from Chiang Mai’s Chiang Dao district to Muang district to join a protest planned Sunday against the new court office and residences that have been built on Doi Suthep.


When they arrived, Nikom Puttha, chairman of the Mae Ping River Conservation Group, and Phra Suthat Suthassano went to the new office of the Appeals Court Region 5 at 12:30 pm to pray for the forests cleared to enable the controversial construction.

 

Activists are planning the “100 Rivers Rally” for Sunday to demand that the court keep its promise of last week to move from Doi Suthep and thus allow the cleared forests to be replanted.

 

Nikom and the monk will represent the Ping River at the rally and were the first activists to arrive for the event.

These judges are like an infestation of cockroaches.  Getting them to leave, though difficult, will be a triumph in judicial reform, but far too small to make a difference to the rest of the country.

These judges are going nowhere. The PM said previously the "law must be obeyed". If he wanted them gone he would have waved Article 44 at them and they would have disappeared. But he hasn't and they are still there.

He needs them for the election, then maybe even after. Thai justice dictates that judges are always handy for a politician to have as a "friend" in court.

They're not just burning an effigy, it's a religious ritual for khon muang.

Happiness brought to the people in the way of demanding judicial reform.  People from every walk of life shows disfavor across the board.
