Since PM Samak of Thailand declared a state of emergency in Bangkok yesterday, it is illegal to gather more than 5 in any part of the city.
Despite the threat, a group of about 50 youths and student activists, gathered on the train station between the National Stadium and Siam last night to share their messages of peace.

Saying no to violence in the midst of Bangkok’s current political upheaval.
Background: skycrapper. Think Bangkok, think shopping, shopping and more shopping? But maybe, not anymore?
It was quite noticeable that shoppers tried to avert the rally, preferring to look the other way, while motorcyclist and passer by touted or honked at the group.

More candlelight vigilants. Are they praying for a more peaceful Bangkok?
