Angry fish farmers block road

- +

SAMUT SONGKHRAM - Angry aquaculture farmers affected by polluted water three months ago blocked all lanes on Rama II Road, which runs through this central province, on Monday afternoon in protest over a subsidy delay, causing a traffic jam stretching over 10km. 

About 500 fish and mussel raisers from Muang and Amphawa districts blocked the road leading to Samut Songkram township shortly before noon and demanded to meet governor Thanon Wetkonkanon. 

Earlier, the group gathered at the provincial hall and threatened to block the road if authorities could not give a satisfactory explanation as to why they had yet to receive compensation despite waiting for almost three months.
