Bang Saphan Noi locals defy protesters

Farmers' road blockade sees residents up in arms

- +

About 100 local people in Bang Saphan Noi district of Prachuap Khiri Khan province are protesting against southern rubber and oil palm growers blocking Phetkasem Road. 

The locals rallied outside a branch of the Bank for Agriculture and Agricultural Cooperatives on the Thesaban-Nong Hat Thai road in Bang Saphan Noi municipality to express their opposition to the rubber protest, which carried on for a fifth day yesterday.

They said the road blockade caused traffic congestion and damage to the Bang Saphan-Nong Hat Thai road, a minor road which now serves as a detour for the blocked Phetkasem Road.
