    I thought that groups of over 5 where not allowed to gather.

    Putting ones neck on the line protesting like this ain't a top idea.

    Maybe better just to let things calm down a tad and see what actually happens before stirring up the shit.

    Hundreds of soldiers confronting ghosts. Protesters make their point than fold away their signs and disappear into the crowd of onlookers.

    Just back from the anti coup demo at Victory Monument. Felt like protesters had foreign media and our coverage very much in their minds.

    Junta may have to consider banning mobile phones. Sclerotic reptiles probably never heard of flash mobs.

    Thai language Twitter would be interesting (though we'd need a translator).

    ps A large proportion of the signs are in English - guess they are being aimed at foreign media, and that is why the latter is being targetted
