    Counter Protests in Thailand


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Retired expat RLSizemore took this image of pro-government protesters -- sometimes known as Red Shirts -- who support Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, in the northern Thai city of Chiang Mai Monday. "The rally was very well-behaved and orderly," he said. "There was excitement in the air, but no negative vibe." For the latest on the protests in Thailand read CNN's story.

    Monday, January 13, was the day the PDRC began its announced goal to "shut down" the capitol city Bangkok until the elected government's leadership is banished from the country and replaced by a 400-member unelected council. Chiang Mai had a significant number of people show up at the Municipal Stadium. Some wore the white shirts now associated with the "Respect the Vote" movement, but most sported the red shirts that garnered so much media attention in 2010.
