War in Bangkok? (photos)

The unrest in Bangkok between the Red Shirt and the government is getting worse.

Bangkok is the capital of Thailand.

At least 36 people died in the clashes so far.

A lot of people were injured.

The Red Shirt protesters set fire to tires, fired homemade rockets and threw gasoline bombs at soldiers.

Things like this is bad because it can start a war.

War is bad.

We can have a peaceful protest to fight for something important.

But we should not use violence to get what we want.

Setting fire also causes air pollution and global warming.

Parts of buildings were damaged and the rubble also caused more pollution.

This is a man-made disaster.

I hope they can find other ways to get what they want without destroying the Earth.

People need to learn that it is very important to save the Earth.


These open fire caused air pollution and global warming!

A Major Earthquake Struck Haiti

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck southern Haiti on Tuesday, about 10 miles (15 km) South East of Port-au-Prince just before 5 pm.

Haiti is one of the Caribbean countries.

CNN said it is a ‘catastrophe of major proportions’.

It means like a very big disaster.

CNN reported bodies in the streets of Port-au-Prince.

Lots of people were injured and dead.

They still can’t count the number of the dead and wounded yet.

The earthquake caused heavy damage to the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Lots of buildings and houses were damage and collapsed.


Power lines were knocked down so there is no electricity on Tuesday evening.

The Associated Press reported that a hospital collapsed.

The President’s residence is also damaged by the earthquake.

In Port-au-Prince lots of houses were built on the steep hillsides.

So when there is an earthquake the houses can fall onto other houses down the hill.

Houses on the hillside in Port-au-Prince. Are these houses still there?

I am very sad because lots of people in Haiti lost their houses and family.

There had been lots of earthquakes in January 2010.

I wrote about ‘ Three Countries Hit By Earthquake’ and Earthquake Strikes California Coast’.
