Food for Thought

Recommended Posts

I normally keep well away from political and social issues on the forum, however I was quite surprised this morning when I came across this food handout. I spoke to the two German gents who appeared to be managing the event and they advised that it took place every day at 0800 hours. I am aware that @tommy dee made a collection and participated in a similar event, but that was during the mid part of last year and I assumed arrangements had been put in hand to avoid the need for free food handouts. I will not comment further but leave the thread for members to view and consider. As a matter of policy I do not normally take photographs of homeless or deprived people, however I decided that this merited an exception. I did not go out of my way to look for rough sleepers, I just came across the three I photographed.

I have moved this thread into the general section of the forum.  Unfortunately it has had to be edited significantly due to some comments breaching forum rules. 

Disallowed Subjects

  1. Royal Families – Thai and others; this is to comply with Thai law. 

  2. Thailand Government and Police Services.  Posts showing disrespect or a negative sentiment towards the Thai Authorities and Institutions are specifically prohibited.

The picture does not represent the scene properly.  It was taken very quickly from  the back seat of a baht bus, being driven by someone who thought they were in a formul one race.  I have never seen such a large crowd before anywhere except at Bali Hai.  The give outs on Beach Road seem to have disappeared.
