Travel woes continue in Bangkok as protesters declare victory

Tuesday, December 02, 2008

The occupation at Bangkok International Airport has turned into a victory rally. The anti-government protesters who have held it for over a week believe they have won. A court ruling means that the Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat has to step down and the ruling party will be dissolved. But the celebrations may be premature. The government says it will elect a new leader and transfer it's members to a new political party, there won't be an election. And neither will there be immediate relief for stranded passengers. The protesters at the airport say they'll only leave if the new Prime Minister meets their approval.
