Protest halts NGV supply
« on: March 12, 2012, 12:44:38 AM »
Villagers continued to block the access road to the natural gas separation plant in Songkhla's Chana district for the third day on Sunday, effectively haulting supplies of natural gas for vehicles (NGV) to retailers, reports said.

The villagers from 150 families of tambon Talingchan in Chana district are demanding compensation of 30,000 baht per year for environmental damage caused by the construction of the gas separation plant.

As a result, NGV stations in Songkhla, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Surat Thani have run out of gas supplies.  Transport of goods and materials across the Thai-Malaysian border, to factories in the South and to several industrial estates in the Central Region has come to a hault.

No authorities have shown up to negotiate with the villagers.

Transporters using NGV have called for all concerned to solve the problem as soon possible, saying it has caused considerable damage to the business sector.

Krisda Boonrat, the Songkhla governor, reportedly is preparing to meet the protesting villagers on Monday.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.
