Youth activists protest demolition of ‘Rin Kham Public Park’

People described as “youth activists” descended on the plaza space outside of the Maya Shopping Center yesterday, July 10 to protest against its demolition.

The space, which the protesters referred to as the “Rin Kham Public Park” after the name of the intersection where its built, is due to be demolished to allow the expansion of lanes at the end of the Superhighway.

Complicating matters, the plaza will illegally built on public land to begin with by the developers of Maya.

The youth protesters, who numbered around 30, held various protest banners with a considerable number also holding skateboards, the space being popular among local skateboarders.

Some partook in a “theatrical performance” which involved modern dance while others tapped messages on the ground to highlight their displeasure.
