    The rebel side of Thailand


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Quebec native kamondiane has been living in Thailand since 1989. She has been working in as a teacher at an international school there and says in the past few months she's noticed that people are becoming increasingly dissatisfied by the Thai government. She says those that are protesting the government want reform and an end of government corruption. She believes news outlets are not reporting both sides of the situation in Thailand. 'It really looked like these news came from only one side, called here the red side, which is the government side,' she said. 'Thai people used to be great at living with what they have. This has disappeared, money has become the most important value... Thailand is at a turning point with their aging king and many monk scandals that the people of the land are worried,' she said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    While reporters from the foreign press chose to show the Thai government side. I decided to show the rebel side. The side that has enough of corruption. The side of the people sharing available resources on the street where they eat, sleep and are kind to each others. The side that follows the heart on a long term not the wallet on a short term.
