  • In Bangkok protests continue. The emcee pleaded for donations of lingerie for protesters who did not prepare for an overnight demonstration. ”We need at least 100 pairs of underpants. Please give us large-size pieces if possible because most who need them are elderly women,” the emcee said. The underwear issue has become a pressing problem for PAD protesters, partly because of heavy rains at Government House. ( sorry I couldn’t resist copying that it from Bangkok Post. Under General News) hahahahaha
