Duck invasion in Thailand - and some drivers with patience and humor. (Real feathered ducks, not 2CVs) Here's the cultural and linguistic back story, for those who are interested: Ducks in 'mass revolt' in Nakhon Pathom 16/06/2014 NAKHON PATHOM - Huge numbers of ducks blocked a rural road in Bang Len district as they left their home farm in a "mass revolt" in search of food, and the incident was caught on camera and shared online. In the video, a car driver was seen complaining ..."I'm not sure why these ducks are in revolt. You can see the great mass of ducks swarming on the road. They have now occupied the area entirely," the man quipped. There could be as many as a "hundred thousand" ducks blocking the road, he added. He was referring to the so-called great mass uprising, or muan maha prachachon, of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), led by former Democrat Party secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban. The PDRC laid siege to Bangkok for about six months, beginning in November, to topple the . ...
The colossal anti-government protests that inundated Bangkok have subsided in recent weeks, but vultures continue to circle Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra   Thailand's Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, center, arrives on a wheelchair at the Royal Police Cadet Academy in Nakorn Pathom province, March 18, 2014.   The barricades have gone, so have the rallies, and grenades aren’t being thrown into crowds of protestors for the time being, but the nightmare is not quite over for Yingluck Shinawatra.   On Wednesday, Thailand’s embattled Prime Minister lifted the state of emergency that since Jan. 22 had governed large swaths of Bangkok, the world’smost visited city, and nearby provinces, in the face of huge anti-government protests.   “The cabinet lifted the state of emergency to instill more confidence in the private sector and tourist industry,” Yingluck told reporters.   The prolonged political conflict in the “Land of Smiles” has already cost the economy more than $3 billion, and a ...
At last it looks as though the street protests designed to oust Thailand’s Prime Minister, Yingluck Shinawatra, are running out of steam. After more than four months of relentless sit-ins and government shutdowns, the leader of the insurrection, Suthep Thaugsuban, has dismantled most of his various protest sites around the capital, retreating to a single encampment in central Bangkok. His supporters are dwindling in number, and so is their appetite for further confrontation. Yet Ms Yingluck is by no means home and dry. The courts may yet succeed where Mr Suthep has not.
Suthep Thaugsuban (20.03): Let's watch a clip from (CMPO chief) Chalerm Yubamrung. (clip of Chalerm) "I don't think the PM should grant Suthep the honor of negotiating with her because he is a traitor and subject to an Arrest Warrant. He is a leader of a dwindling movement - at the most they have had 210,000 demonstrators. Last night they only had about 800 people when (PDRC core leader) Satit Wongnongtaey started to speak in anger. Suthep doesn't have any honor, that's why the PM shouldn't negotiate with him. But if she decides to do so I will respect her decision of course." Listen up, Chalerm. I have never requested to meet or negotiate with Yingluck. I already said that I'm afraid of going insane if I have to talk to her. The person who requested the talks is Yingluck Shinawatra, your boss. Why can't you remember what your superior said? Yingluck was the one who said that "if Suthep is thinking of the good of the nation, he should enter into talks." That's why I said I would agree to such discussions ...
Here is an interesting article from "The Economist" this week - Approaching the endgame? A messy poll leaves Thailand in an even worse pickle ELECTIONS are supposed to provide political solutions. The one Thailand held on February 2nd served only to further exacerbate its problems. Both sides of the political divide claimed a victory. The governing Pheu Thai party, which had defied protesters’ efforts to scupper the vote through disruption, intimidation and a boycott, could boast that nearly 90% of polling stations opened for business and that nearly half of voters turned out. But the protesters and the main opposition Democrat Party which backs them thwarted voting in enough places to mean that, constitutionally, no government can be formed. They may now succeed in having the whole election annulled by the courts. And these might even find a reason to dissolve Pheu Thai. The enemies of Yingluck Shinawatra, the Prime Minister, are inching closer to their goal of forcing her to resign. The evening after ...

Thailand - political unrest update: plans of the protesters to "occupy" Bangkok on 13 January 2014 Protest leader Suthep details January 13 strategy January 3, 2014 10:06 am Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban on Thursday detailed the plans for January 13 when anti-government protesters have said they will shut down the capital to put pressure on the Yingluck Shinawatra government. Suthep, secretary general of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), took the stage at Rajadamnoen on Thursday night to explain the plan with the aim of preventing further mudslinging by the government and red shirts supporters. He described the mass rally on January 13 as "civil disobedience to show to the world [the] Yingluck government's failure to administer the country and underline that Thai people will no longer tolerate its corruption and abuse of power". "I do not want Thailand to become a failed state. Our mass rally will on the contrary demonstrate that the Yingluck government, which is under the 'Thaksin Regim ...
Thailand - political unrest update - new siege of Bangkok announced for 13 January 2014 , many candidates for elections coul dnot register because they were hindered by protesters. Capital siege set for Jan 13 PDRC to hold daily marches from Sunday; may surround the homes of key govt figures BANGKOK: -- THE ANTI-GOVERNMENT People's Democratic Reform Committee last night announced details of its plan to lay siege to Bangkok from January 13.

What do the protesters really want? Posted on Wednesday, 11 December 2013, 12: 24 GMT Protesters waging a surreal political fight to oust the Prime Minister are trying to establish what amounts to a parallel government - one complete with "security volunteers" to replace the police, a foreign policy of their own and a central committee that has already begun issuing audacious 'orders'. Among the most brazen: a demand Tuesday that caretaker premier Yingluck Shinawatra be prosecuted for "insurrection," and another calling on the public to "closely monitor" her family’s movements. Leading academics have slammed the scheme as undemocratic and unconstitutional. Critics have called its leader, Suthep Thaugsuban, delusional. But the ex-lawmaker’s bid to seize power is backed by many in Bangkok and could become reality if the military or the judiciary intervenes, as they have in the past. Analysts say this Southeast Asian nation is at a dangerous new crossroads that could drag on, and end with more bloodshed. ...
Thai police remove key barricades Jonathan Head says the confrontation "has suddenly turned into something a bit like a family picnic" Thai protesters entered the government's headquarters after police removed barricades from outside both Government House and the police office. The mood in the capital Bangkok appeared considerably calmer after the move, which followed clashes over the weekend and on Monday. But as tensions fell, protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban vowed to fight on and remove the government. The Thai Prime Minister has rejected protesters' demands that she step down. Yingluck Shinawatra said she was open to negotiations but that calls for the government to be replaced by an appointed council were illegal and unconstitutional. The protests, which began on 24 November, had been largely peaceful until Saturday, when they became violent. Over the weekend and on Monday demonstrators tried to break apart police barricades and storm the Prime Minister's office, Government House, with police using t ...
Bangkok Protesters Raid Finance Ministry Compound - New York Times BANGKOK — Anti-government protesters raided the compound of Thailand’s Finance Ministry on Monday in the latest escalation of a long-running battle between supporters and opponents of Thaksin Shinawatra, the billionaire former Prime Minister whose party has a commanding majority in Parliament and determined opponents in Bangkok. Tens of thousands of protesters, who on Sunday staged one of Thailand’s largest demonstrations in several years, split into a dozen groups early on Monday and marched through Bangkok chanting “Get out!” — apparently in reference to Mr. Thaksin’s sister, Yingluck Shinawatra, the current Prime Minister, and to others in Mr. Thaksin’s circle. The takeover of the Finance Ministry recalled previous protests against Mr. Thaksin and his allies in 2008, when demonstrators occupied and shut down the Prime Minister’s office and Bangkok’s main international airport. Suthep Thaugsuban, a former deputy prime ...
