Bangkok construction boom faces resistance

Residents launch online campaign to keep property developers out of city's largest green area.

    Thailand's capital Bangkok is undergoing a construction boom.

    Next in line is the largest green space in the heart of the city, a partially used railway yard that could soon be leased to property developers.

    Opponents want it turned into a museum and public park and have started an online campaign.

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay reports from Bangkok.
