Red Shirt Rebellion in Nakhon Ratchasima

| May 30, 2010 | 11 Comments | 9,865 views

Khorat (Nachon Rachasima) is Red Shirt country.

The Curfew was a Yellow Shirt edict enforced by the local police.

Common sense leads one to believe that the citizens of Khorat wouldn’t be too happy about Bangkok bureaucrats dictating behavior in their neighborhood and the police wouldn’t be too gung ho about enforcing edicts passed from on high—- especially when it costs the locals and themselves money.

Before traveling to the Issan during the curfew, I would guess the curfew would be ignored or given lip service by Issan Thai’s—both the man on the street and the authorities.

Here are a couple of pics inside a popular club/disco in Khorat when the midnight curfew was in effect.

These pics were taken on a weekday night right a midnight.

The curfew has begun, the club should be closing and the workers and patrons should he rushing home to avoid being swept up in police roadblocks.

Guess what.

The club was packed. Customers continued pouring in after Midnight and there was absolutely no police enforcement on the streets after midnight.

None of the clubs’ workers were the least concerned about getting off work and getting home after the curfew started.

It was pretty much business as usual.

Here are some pictures of Korat streets after the curfew.

Looks like a typical Korat night in the wee hours to me.

If you didn’t know , you would never guess a curfew was in effect.

    There were at least as many people if not more in Queens Park Plaza every night during the curfew!  Once again Kenny, putting your own idiot assumptions to a situation and applying it to a larger situation.  Post some pussy shots we know you have some fresh ones!

    Fake Werewolf,

    Of course, an educated person could speculate that hordes of girls left their jobs in Bangkok and returned to their families in Issan for safety during the Bangkok War and the subsequent curfew.

    Another factor in their flight might have been the fact that places of employment were closed or were open but had no customers because foreigners had been avoiding Thailand for weeks because of the civil unrest.

    And an educated person could speculate that the girls and their families are suffering economic hardship from the disruption of all types of business during the recent civil unrest.

    And the same educated person would inevitably be drawn to the conclusion that these girls would avail themselves of any and every opportunity to make some money while at home in Issan. After all, standard feminist dogma is that these girls are driven by their severe poverty.

    So if you were in an Issan Shopping Mall during the curfew period can you predict how many girls would be there?

    And what wages they would accept if an opportunity for employment was offered?

    And, of course, if you happen to have $6,000 USD of state of the art camera equipment on you and were proficient in its use, what aforementioned educated person would naturally do?

    And if you were a longtime visitor to Thailand you would realize that right now might be a unique period in modern Thai history — a perfect storm that provides a once in a lifetime experience if one happened to be lucky enough to be on the ground, right in the heart of the action.

    Sort of like being lucky enough to have been alive and in China during the Boxer Rebellion.

    P.S, were the people in Queens Park before or after the curfew went into effect? And were the Bangkok police stopping people and potentially asking for a bribe if the were caught out after curfew?
