A group of Muslims, who call themselves Muslims for Peace, are preparing a demonstration in Bangkok on Wednesday the 12th of March to urge Muslims in Thailand to boycott Danish products. This happens after the group held a meeting on Wednesday March 5th, announcing the upcoming demonstration.
The demonstration is planned to begin at Lumphini Park in Bangkok at 08.00 am. and continue on to the Danish embassy in Bangkok. The Danish embassy is aware of the demonstration and has made contact to the embassy’s clients to urge them to stay away from the embassy at the time of the demonstration.
The local police are also aware of the demonstration. Muslims for Peace held a similar demonstration in 2006 in regards to the Danish Muhammad cartoon crisis.
