    Red and yellows fighting on the street

    As we speak. In a major cosmo / tourist area (nimin-heemen). A bunch of yellows just sought refuge in Hillside 2 lobby after the reds kicked the crap out of them in a street fight. Not too serious, no weapons or anything. Wonder what sort of coverage this will receive. The reds have been getting restless lately, seen some protesting in Lamphun a few weeks back.

    Some early snaps off a Thai blog site....

    This should not be treated as news, just gossip. Reports are that there was an anti-Thaksin meeting of sorts at Chiang Mai Uni. The reds broke a truce to not start any trouoble, and now have nimminheimen road closed...

    Apparently the 'V' mask wearers .... .... are not yellow shirts. They're a new anti-thaksin group.

    Yes... the yellows come in a rainbow of colors these days and some even wear masks.

    Bit of a fizzer really. Still, the lack of Thai news coverage is interesting. You'd think something like this in downtown Chiang Mai would get a little play.

    This went up some 11 hours ago, so maybe they forgot about the ladyboy requirement:

    A group of anti-government protesters in white Guy Fawkes masks clashed with rival pro-government red shirts in Chiang Mai during a small gathering yesterday.
