Protestors in Thailand on 7 October 2008
Protestors took to the streets of Bangkok on Wednesday to mark the first anniversary of violent clashes with police that killed two people and left many injured.
The day after forming the New Politics Party, about 5,000 people, led Sondhi Limthongkul, PAD’s leader, crowded into the capital’s Royal Plaza to pay homage to people who were killed or injured at a protest last year.
Sondhi described the victims as “heroes” and said they would “not allow your fight to be a waste”. He added that they would continue to search for justice.
