Today millions of Thai’s will vote on a military-drafted constitution that will limit the powers of politicians but lead to elections by the end of the year. Whilst there has been numerous reports in the press about the details of the draft, I decided to visit a selection of slums yesterday to see what the people wanted and hoped for Thailand.
I spent 4 hours in a community living by the railway tracks, just down the road from Central World Shopping Centre, and talked to various people about how they felt. Interestingly enough the number one concern was how the lack of education for poor people was not being treated by the government.
As soon as the labs process the film, I will post the multimedia slideshow here.
