The previous Boeung Kak lake demonstration (see HERE), commemorating the 365th day of detention for Yorm Bopha, land rights activist and Amnesty International Prisoner of Conscience, was not fully representative of their intent as a large amount of demonstration material was held up by the police. So the community reiterated this morning, but this time in full gear, by demonstrating in front of the Supreme Court, marched in front of the Royal Palace, even though the King returns tomorrow only from Beijing, and went on through a police blockade to the E.U. delegation, to end up at the World Bank.

The whole story about Boeung Kak lake, all the way back to 2007, can be found HERE and HERE.
