You're not so hot: One of the protesting vendors from the new Bangkok Noi
Railway Market shows his rage by squeezing an empty plastic water bottle
which is standing in for the genitals of the straw effigy of Mr. Chuwit
(Gui) Pitakpornpanlop, Thai Rak Thai MP, whom they believe to be the powerful
protector of the vendors who have refused to be evicted from the old market
site. The resulting delay in closing down the old market has caused the
new site vendors to lose money for two years.
