Thai Protesters Target Government House
Thai protesters' attempt to take over Government House was set back by police concrete barricade, rubber bullets, and purple chemical mixed with tear gas. The protesters used backhoe and bear hand tug of war to remove those concrete barriers. Many protesters came prepared with saline, mask and rain gear to counter tear gas, but was surprised by purple chemical. One of the pictures shows a group of protesters covering a red shirt man from harm because he was paid to come sightseeing in Bangkok only to realize that he was used. The Thai protesters will resume their attempt to take over the Royal Government House tomorrow. Note that this action doesn't change the government, but symbolizes another step forward in overthrowing Thaksin Regime.
