Earlier this week in Thailand, a shocking turn of events took place. Ordered to harass and block protestors , policemen instead yielded to the peaceful riot by laying down their barricades and helmets as a sign of solidarity.
The gathering protestors explained that their goal is to destroy the political machine of former Prime Minister Thakskin Shinawatra, who is accused of widespread corruption and abuse of power.
The present Prime Minister, Yingluck Shinawatra, is Thakskin’s sister and is seen as a puppet of her brother.
In a move to topple the Shinawatra government, protestors planned on storming the Bangkok Metropolitan Police Bureau. This act was devised and led by protest leader, Suthep Thaugsuban.
