Classes Cancled due to Mass Red Rally

Presumably as an effect to the proposed threat of unrest caused by the massive red shirt political protest marchy – rally expected to ensue aggressively this weekend, classes at Bangkok University International have been halted to ensure safety on Friday, March 12, post 16.40, and all day Saturday, March 13th and Sunday, March 14. Also, Monday classes are expected to be canceled. The following email was sent out to BUIC students:

Dear all students,

Please be informed that all classes will be cancelled on Friday, March 12, 2010 from 16.40-17.50 and Saturday – Sunday, March 13-14, 2010, all day.


BU International

While the reason is not overtly stated, it is obvious to those following the media mayhem. Students and all citizens in Bangkok whom cherish life as it is are advised not to flounder about high profile spots  if not absolutely necessary.
