The Uprising of Thai Woman: Against Thaksin Regime
Police tear gas have been bombarded continuously, every 2 minutes, into the anti-government protestors for two consecutive days.
It is surprising to see that many thai women are willing to march up the fron-tline confronting the riot police, risking themself of tear gas injury.
After rinsing out the irritating tear gas, some of these women even continued to get back into the battle field.
The violent protest arose against the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, triggered by a proposed amnesty bill, facilitating the return of the self-exiled former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatr, who was convicted of corruption, tax evasion and terrorist. The bill was passed by the dominant Thaksin's Pheu Thai Party.
Even more than one million Thai, students of Universities and many organization personnels throughout the country had marched out to protest the government. However, the Prime minister insisted not to resign.
There was report that the tear gas were horizontally shot from the police. Real bullets have also been used. High speed water cannon of strong acid liquid have been used in the attempt to halt the protestors.
