“Political Market” Photograph

The message says, “Welcome from Thailand’s first female Prime Minister”. There was a group of “red shirts” (supporters of the PM’s political wing) campaigning along the street market on this day and whatever my political opinion I don’t like seeing the markets used like this – it’s such a distraction from the consumerism.

Chiang Mai is one of the red shirts’ strongholds and, unfortunately, it would have to be a very brave “yellow shirt” to campaign through one of the city’s street markets.
