Vigil in Bangkok

There was an organized protest at the Myanmar Embassy in Bangkok earlier tonight. About 150 turned out on a Saturday night for a prayer and meditation vigil, including about 50 journalists. Bangkok religious groups were well represented, as were expatriots. The protestors poured off the sidewalk and occupying a lane of the street. The police provided much needed traffic control.

This embassy is located on the street under the skytrain tracks, just two blocks from Sathorn Station. I expect the vigils will continue.

Update 10/01: The Bankok Post reports that some Burmese students began a vigil outside the Chinese Embassy in Bangkok today.
