Political Crisis in Thailand

Yellow shirst have become red shirts, but this color does not enjoy the Establishment backing that was seen behind the PAD last year. The UDD red shirts can hardly effect the changes to the status quo so long as the authorities remain restrained and patient in their response. 

Petra's, Mateo's girlfriend, father Jay (Thitinan Pongsudhurak of Chulalongkorn University)  says: "If the red shirts' disaffection is left to fester further, their increasingly organic movement may grow into its own, fed by insults and fanned by suppression, to pose a challenge to the Establishment in proportions previously unseen".

Hope not.
