3 day protest
by garlic farmers at
Chiang Mai City Hall
More than 700 farmers and garlic growers from five local districts protested in
front of City Hall recently, following a refusal by the Secretary General to the
Minister of Commerce, Arisman Pongruangrong, to help negotiate a better price
for their crops. During the three day protest, 500 members of the security
forces, police and special task force units were deployed at the scene. On the
third day, April 10, Arisman finally met with representatives of the protestors
and with Natniti Wuthithammapanya, the head of the network of growers.
