About 1,000 Chiang Mai residents rally to protest against judges’ housing project

About 1,000 members of the civil society in Chiang Mai gathered this morning (Sunday) at Tha Phae gate to protest against the housing project for judges at the foot of Doi Suthep mountain in Mae Rim district.

Wearing T-shirts with the slogan that reads “Rak (Love) Doi Suthep” and a green ribbon tied to their left wrists as a symbol of their opposition to the controversial project, the demonstrators later marched to the statue of three former Lanna kings to pay their respect.

A brief religious ceremony was held in front of the statue to seek blessing from devine power to protect Doi Suthep.

An exhibition of paintings opposing the housing project was also held at Tha Phae gate.

The protest ended before noon today.
