ASEAN forces Boeung Kak Lake to stay home…

Boeung Kak Lake, Borei Keila and Pochentong Airport communities under threat of an eviction tried to stage a demonstration claiming their Human Rights ahead of the ASEAN meetings, but they were blocked inside their neigbourhood by important forces of riot police. They then turned to the sand-filled lake and will continue to demonstrate there this afternoon.
