When I see all the thousands of people on that roads, I have the feeling, they don't give a damn about any notices from police or CMPO or the emergency decree in general. What I hear so far from protesters indicates ,that the caretakers become the object of ridicule and the CMPO the laughing stock of this nation.

Another bad joke! Why do our authorities issue all these useless orders? I am sure many of the mentioned buildings are anyhow for authorized personal only. Or is it on a normal day possible to just walk into a satellite station without authorization? And how about the roads: I live in the middle of the area “Sukhumvit from Nana intersection to Soi Sukhumvit 19”. Do I have to stay home now? And isn’t it funny that this restriction is only until Sukhumvit Soi 19? The protesters are between Soi 19 and Soi 23 so they are not included in that area? But then again, when was the last time this government made any sense?
