The Who, What, and Why's of Thailand's Ongoing Protests.
December 18, 2013
This coming Sunday (December 22, 2013) will be the third and potentially largest mass mobilization yet by the anti-regime movement in Thailand. The counter-color revolution against Wall Street-backed Thaksin Shinawatra and
his regime's attempt to transform Thailand into yet another vassal of
Western influence has gained immense traction - already forcing the
proxy prime minister, dictator Thaksin Shianwatra's sister, Yingluck, to
dissolve parliament and call for new elections.
this is not enough. A system that continuously returns a dictator to
power when he is not even eligible for office, nor on the ballot, nor
even in the country, is a system in dire need of reform before another
election can be held. The fact that Thaksin Shinawatra had the arrogance
to literally make "Thaksin Thinks, Peua Thai Does"
the campaign motto for the 2011 general election is proof positive that
3rd world corruption has permeated Thailand's democratic process and
must be thoroughly purged before legitimate elections can be held
