Thailand’s Red Shirts reportedly preparing to group

Estimated read time 1 min read

Thailand’s anti-government Red Shirt protestors are reportedly preparing to regroup, following their bloody defeat by the military last month. Hundreds of Red Shirt protestors, many of whom support ousted former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, have been arrested. But many more are in hiding, with some believed to have sought refuge in Cambodia. The government of Abhisit Vejajiva is yet to lift an emergency decree blanketing one third of Thailand, fearing further unrest.

Around 88 people were killed during the 10-week protest which ended after the military stormed the protest encampment in Bangkok’s city hub.
