Political Demonstrations in Thailand

Monday / 13 January 2014

Demonstrators protesting against the current government of Thailand called for a "Shutdown Bangkok" protest today. Many major intersections are closed and stages have been set up for addressing the crowds. Tents have appeared also as a huge number of demonstrators prepare for a long haul of demonstrating.
