    Tapioca growers shut down highway in protest

    SI SA KET, 15 January 2012 (NNT) – Tapioca farmers gather to protest the downfall of tapioca prices and plead with the government to resolve the crisis.

    More than 50 trucks loaded with tapioca have been brought in to block Highway No. 24 in Kantharalak district, Si Sa Ket province, while tapioca farmers spread the produce on the road to pressure the government for a speedy response. The protesters demand the government to come up with a speedy solution to the price fall by shoring up the market price to 3 baht/kg.

    The protest has caused the traffic between the lower region of the Northeast and Bangkok as well as that in the local area to become paralyzed.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar
