    It's kickoff time again it seems.

    well it looks like things are going to come to a head with the latest protests today and the next few days.

    hopefully we will get valuable updates here if it all turns nasty? or is everyone more concerned with more important threads like reminiscing over their first wank, TDH twat fights, etc?

    plenty of live updates being posted on other sites, but here we get fuck all . Bring back SD!

    It's all quite upsetting really. Why don't these fukers, on all sides, just concentrate on governing and the political process. If the dems spent their time and effort on developing policies and real political options for the electorate they'd likely be in power by now & the country might democratically develop...
    How do I post these pictures???

    its quite simple really.

    unfortunately noone wants to accept it.

    the simple fact is the thai public does not understand democracy and are not ready for it. they follow their leaders in the same way they have followed the instuctions of their village elders for generations.

    if you went up to pretty much any of the protestors on the street and told them. "do *you* want to be a leader? do *you* want to represent your neighbours? do *you* want to make the laws that run Thailand? Do you know that in a democracy you can do that and not have to follow the instructions of other people, like your so called leaders?" - they would think you are mad.

    and the sad fact is that in the current climate, you would be mad for believing that yourself.

    The problem is, one of the many problems, that Suthep and the leaders of the other groups want some of their protesters to be killed - the more the better; they want violence, they want the army to step in, ban the elected government again, and put the dems or a military government in. To do this, they want to engineer a situation where some of their supporters get killed... That's what scumbags these folk are...

    They are all fucking nuts and have been forever. Our only hope is todays students. Oh wait there is no hope. They have not been allowed to learn anything. This thing is now gaining the momentum I hoped it would not. Watch out...

    Thai social media is buzzing right now let me tell you.

    Updates- Political rallies are every where in Bangkok. On the Democracy stage various intellectuals are speaking in both Thai and English. More and more people are coming out to support the 'Million Man March. Meanwhile, there is a drunken man on the Red Shirt stage, insulting the Thailand's justice system.




    Blue Sky Channel has been blocked, who did that?




    From Phra Pin-klao bridge to Sanam Luang within the hour.. Words on the streets, government are looking to block streaming signals of the protests.










    some on the street reports in the last hour.

    Hang on stop right here before one of the TD trash collectors comes along and flushes this.

    This thread/forum is for reports/pics on the protests themselves and associated incidents - not a discussion on the politics behind them - plenty of threads for that in News.

    BANGKOK - About 100,000 anti-government protesters gathered in Thailand's capital on Sunday, as simmering tensions between Bangkok's middle classes and the mostly rural supporters of ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra threatened to boil over.

    Why? It is the official mourning period of the Supreme Patriarch and people have been requested to wear black.

    IMHO I don't think it matters if it is hard, and that the Thais on both sides are not all ready Gerbil, democracy takes decades of struggle and now and again lost life's to develop, but small steps ahead will always be better than, giant steps backwards into the dictatorial peasant servitude that many from the so-called Thai elite clings on too, they are just as clueless and good for nothing, which in reality is an even sadder and bigger problem.

    Small issues like for-instance an eventual return of Thaksin is no where near enough to risk the fledgling Thai democracy moving forward, that thing is blown way out of proportion by constant relentless rubbish propaganda, no middle or upper class minority is justified to make that call ever!!, if they can't convince by verbal debate, and that is what the most Thais is OK with then it must be so, claiming the masses is manipulated is a rubbish argument, that has been used by over-class rulers to justify - power rule by force - since the time of dawn.

    The masses must be given the time, (sometimes long time) to learn their own lessons and adjust mistakes made, but as long as they have a majority they also have the right in a democracy to make those mistakes.

    Just look at Burma, it shows how devastating for development it can be if dictatorial powers is allowed to keep status quo going.

    With a certain "event" looming in the near horizon, I am worried that all can end in tears, we saw what Tito's death did in Yugoslavia, when the one thing they all could agree on suddenly was gone, not that I expect anything that extreme from lazy Thais, but very very serious rifts that parts the country politically, and military intervention for a very long period is certainly possible.

    100 vehicles hit by spikes on way to Bangkok

    November 24, 2013 4:50 pm

    Some 100 vehicles had their tyres blown by spikes dispersed on the Bangkokbound lanes of Phetchkasem Highway in Prachuap Khiri Khan on Saturday night.

    Suwiwat Promma, deputy director of the Huay Mongkol Highway Rescue Patrol, said many of the spikes were found in Bangkok.

    The damaged cars could have plunged into the roadside canal or crashed into trees and killed a lot of people.

    By morning, police had recorded at least 100 cars whose tyres had been punctured by the spikes.

    The Nation
    its incidents like that, carried out by fringe elements of the mobs that slowly ratchet up the nastiness and danger inherent in massive protests.
