Red Constitution

Red Constitution

I took this photo of Constitution Monument on Tuesday. I saw the red umbrella, and thought it fit well with the overall theme of the day.

Meanwhile, today the red shirts began a mobile protests, tens of thousands traveling through the streets of Bangkok. The idea is to generate support for their cause, but I wonder if causing traffic jams will have the desired effect. Perhaps.

The red shirt action is not limited to the streets. Apparently former Prime Minister Thaksin has ruled out negotiations offered by Prime Minister Abhisit. Opposition Peau Thai (red shirts) parliament members have pledge to no longer co-operate with the government, hoping to force a disolution.
