Gum Hak Moeng Nan

Alas spending on road expansion, as observant residents of Chiang Mai will have noticed with the Nimmanhaemin Rd widening-extension project speeding ahead, continues unabated.

Please support this petition to oppose road widening in Nan which will destroy beautiful trees, and in violation of the Thai Constitution.
