Civil opposition to the constitution starts to grow | Bangkok Post: news

The groups, which held a seminar at Thammasat University yesterday, said the draft restricted rights on environmental issues and public hearings, and failed to address public health issues across the economic spectrum.Consumer rights groups said they were being denied a voice.The seminar also covered provisions relating to the tackling of corruption.Amarin Saichan of the Enlaw Foundation, a non-profit legal group, said the draft restricts rights relating to environmental issues, such as the right to act to protect the environment.It also fails to guarantee public hearings to gather feedback on development projects.Mr Amarin said the draft emphasises fair water and garbage management and the importance of climate change. But it fails to mention how to reduce garbage and does not outline legal measures that allow the public to take part in waste management.
