Thai anti-govt protest goes on despite court injunction
Members and supporters of an anti-government protest in its second month late Monday continued attacking the coalition government of Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej, reported state news agency TNA.

The protests obstruct traffic near Government House even after an injunction granted by the Civil Court for them to open two major roads immediately.

The Civil Court on Monday afternoon acted following lawsuits were filed by teachers and parents of students at a school near Government House against six core leaders of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD). The lawsuits charged that the ongoing demonstrations in front of Government House had caused inconveniences to pupils travelling to or leaving school as well as to teachers of the school.

The court then gave a temporary injunction and ruled that demonstrators must open two major roads near the school and stop using loudspeakers on weekdays between 7.30 am and 4.30 pm effective immediately.

But the protest continued with no indication that the demonstrators would open the two roads. PAD core leaders said that they had already appealed the ruling and were awaiting the outcome.

More police and security personnel were seen being dispatched to provide security at Government House after the court ruling.
