Another Day of Teargas, Water Cannons, Rubber Bullets and Real Bullets in Bangkok
During the day, I saw several pictures that my friends posted on Facebook. Those who were near the Government House, the Parliament and the Metropolitan Police Headquarters posted the pictures of what happened in the areas. For example, a girlfriend was helping pouring the water on the eyes of her boyfriend. Another young couple was taking supplies from supporters in some government offices to the protest sites. Another group of medical personnel was helping the protestors.
In the afternoon, I went to the National Police Headquarters on Rama 1. There were a lot of people. I looked at the policemen inside the gate, and smiled to them. They smiled back. We are Thais.
Around 4 pm., Assistant Professor Dr. Than Supattarapun, the Associate Dean, Faculty of Economics, Ramathibodi Hospital had a press conference. He said that there were 94 people injured. Among these, there were 2 persons who were shot by live bullets. One was in a serious condition.
Around the same time, Thailand University Rectors issued a letter requesting non-violence from all sides, condemning the incident at Ramkamhaeng University, and suggesting the Government to dissolve the Parliament.
It was another long day in Bangkok.
