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.
