THAILAND LETTER: A day in the Buddhist Peacemaker Team camp

The Buddhist Peacemaker Team camp was located in Sunam Luang Park in front of the Thammasat University.  It was a big camp manned by at least thirty monks, the majority of the monks coming from the Buddhist Temple in Pattaya under the leadership of The Venerable Rev. Doctor Tuanchai, rector of the Buddhist college in Pattaya.  They were doing their morning Buddhist worship joined by at least two dozen Thai Red Shirts, feeding the Thai people who chose to stay in the monks’ Peace Tent.
