More Journalist Blood on the Streets

One of our heroes, Amy Goodman, reported today that among the 38 that were killed by the Thai Government was a Canadian reporter. Amy Goodman, who started her career (I remember reading in one of her books) almost being shot at a protest in South America years ago, held a very good debate between two sides of the argument. Her story is here.  The protesters are mostly rural and urban poor who are part of a group called the UDD, the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship, more commonly known as the Red Shirts. She hosted a debate between Giles Ji Ungpakorn, a Thai dissident living in exile in Britain who supports the Red Shirt movement; and Philip Cunningham, a freelance journalist who has covered Asia for over twenty years. I’ve gotta run. It’s pouring spring rain, but Athena hasn’t been out all day as I ran errands. Until tomorrow, your friend, Anita Thompson
