Peace for Burma activists held demonstrations in front of Thai gas giant PTT offices on Thursday. Activists also submitted a written request to PTT to withdraw from Burma for the time being, and to only resume its operations in Burma after democratic reforms.

Demonstrators held banners with slogans such as "No more investment in Burma". A spokesman from Peace for Burma, Ko Macy, told DVB that current investments in Burma not only benefit the junta, but also make things much worse for the country and its people.
"We would like to request investors to look at the situation in Burma, to consider the well-being of the people, and stop their investments until the democratic reforms are in place."

Peace for Burma activists also demonstrated yesterday in front of the Chinese embassy in bangkok to protest against 12 years of house arrest for pro-democratic leader, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi.
