More than 1,000 people gathered at Provincial Hall at 8am for the Phuket event, where Phuket Governor Chockchai Dejamornthan led officials and residents in the mass singing and oath-taking ceremony.

Standing in front of a portrait of the late HM King Bhumibol, the officials and residents pledged to do good for the kingdom, religion and the monarchy.

They also sang Royal Anthem and vowed to be loyal to every monarch of the Chakri Dynasty, which have ruled over Thailand in unbroken succession for more then 200 years.

Yes Kurt, these ineffective beach clean-ups are nothing more than photo ops.  Look how they march in straight lines like a herd of sheep, picking up leaves and pieces of wood...but leaving plastic and cigarette stubs behind.  Nobody retreiving the plastic bags and other garbage along the tide line and wet sand.  Just a joke.

The area where the Rawai Mayor and the cleaning people are walking is only in use by the plywood speedboats and their thai/birmese crew.
Why not oblige the speedboat people to keep that area clean?
It take just 1 person from Orbor Tor daily 10 minutes to check that area and order the boatpeople to clean.
Thai are very good in ordering.
Further more the garbage collection photo shows just a propaganda and publicity happening.
They are half way the stretch and mayors plastic bag is still empty.
They should have gone to Naiharn Beach and area around temple and Lake Naiharn.
