Locals Dress As Ghosts To Protest Broken Bridge

Bizarre video footage doing the rounds shows how angry locals dressed as ghosts to protest about a broken bridge.

Residents were annoyed that the crossing had not been repaired since tropical storm Podul hit Thailand in September.

The concrete structure collapsed, leaving people living in the remote part of in Chaiyaphum province unable to reach neighbouring villages.

They dressed as ghouls and mimicked coming back from the dead to haunt the local politician responsible for road works.

Video from Sunday shows several men with their faces painted while clambering up like zombies from the broken structure and groaning while heading towards the government office.

This strange protest resembles the traditional Thai belief that spirits rise from the dead to seek donations from the living.

The chief executive of the provincial administrative organization, Montree Chakruea, admitted that the repairs were delayed but asked for residents to be patient – and not to haunt her.
