    Sleeping on the streets to save your country


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Canadian author and library manager kamondiane has lived in Thailand for 26 years and said she felt sorry for those protesting in Bangkok. "I pity people of a country I love who have sworn to fight for their country in a non-violent way," she said. "I pity them because I can see, hear, feel their pain. Sleeping on Bangkok streets, without commodities ... a few days we can do but three months?" Anti-government protests demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra have wracked the city for weeks. Four died in the latest spasm of violence Tuesday. For the latest on the protests in Bangkok read CNN's news story.

    Thai have been on the streets for more than 3 months. Because their protests lead by Khun Suthep Thaughsuban is a non violent one, the government plays the deaf role; hoping that people will get fed up and go back home.
    I took a few photos this morning while most of the protesters were off walking to show what is life on the streets when you badly want to save what is left from your country, and want to get yourself heard and seen from the world, so they might help you!
