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.
