Uncle Suthep and the Thai Reform
Thai protest for reform before election has been going on for more than two months now. The vast movement with marches attracts not hundreds of thousands like some Medias have reported but millions of people.
Why, it is very simple, Thai know that if there is another election the traditional winner will buy their way around again and will control the country piling up money as it has been for the last ten years. Farmers in the country have not been paid yet the government saying that there is no money, but at the same time starting impressive road projects.
People have enough, enough of getting robbed. Hearing the people talking for the Reform every night on Blue Sky, I came to understand many facts.
Thai protest are non-violent, no drugs, no alcohol, just people marching with their heart; people understanding that having elected a businessman as a leader many years ago was a mistake. A businessman is not there to teach people to be compassionate. Thai people understand that; they are ready to lose time and money and clean the political system with a reform of the constitution before any election is to take place.
