Thai PM urges protest end after vote

Thai PM urges protest end after vote | History | Scoop.it
Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra urges anti-government demonstrators to end street protests, after surviving a no-confidence vote in parliament.
Nao Nishizaki's insight:

Thai government led by the Prime Minister Yingluck Shiawatra is now facing the biggest demonstration. They call on the government to step down and marched on ministries. On last Wednesday, hundreds of protesters surrounded Thailand’s top crime-fighting agency. The U.N leader, Ban Ki-moom and Ms. Yingluck has urged protesters to stop demonstration. Subsequently, The opposite Democrat Party voted motion of no confidence against her. On 28th, no confidence against her was rejected at the parliament. 

 

The reason why I try to comment on this article is because Thai is located near Malaysia and I am personally curious about the economic situation and political problems around South East Asia. Nowadays, South East Asian countries have rapidly developed in terms of both economically and politically. 

 

My opinion about this demonstration happening in Thailand is 

that solving the issue that Ms Yingluck's government is actually controlled by her brother,  the ousted former leader Thaksin Shinawatra need to be done first. Also, two sides in Parliament need to negotiate, otherwise the economic situation in Thailand would be deteriorated.

US remembers Kennedy 50 years on

US remembers Kennedy 50 years on | History | Scoop.it
Flags are lowered, bells toll and wreaths are laid, as the US marks half a century since President John F Kennedy's assassination in Dallas.
Nao Nishizaki's insight:

It has been 50 years since  President John F Kennedy was killed by an assassin's bullet in Dallas, Texas. He is remembered for ordering one of the most disastrous episodes of the Cold War, the failed Bay of Pigs invasion of communist Cuba by a CIA-trained paramilitary force of Cuban exiles. 


I do not reallt know about him, but since his daughter, Caroline Kenedy is appointed as New U.S. Ambassador in Japan  from this year, I often watch news about this. Her father had hoped to become the first sitting U.S. president to visit Japan before he was assassinated in Dallas 50 years ago this week.

 I read another article about her travels to Japan's imperal places to meet Emperor Akihito. Even though it is just a coincidence that I read this article on the same day as I read articla about Caroline Kenedy's visit Japan, I am so glad that she is going to serve as New U.S ambasador in Japan. I am looking forward that she is going to stregthen the relationsihp between Japan and the U.S.
