    Behind the Lines at the Red Shirt Protest in Bangkok

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     LifeMeister told me, 'I have no doubt that if the army came in to move them there will be huge conflicts. They (the red shirts) are completely dug in.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I went down to where the protest were happening in downtown Bangkok.  I expected to see a few red shirts and may be some barricades.  I was completely blown away once I got there with the size and extent this protest has taken.  Tim and I were able to get behind the lines and walk around and record some of what is taking place.  We were the only white (non Thai) that I saw the whole time we were there.  The Thai people  were very friendly and you could tell that they wanted the pictures and videos to get out to the world.

     

    Walking around you can feel the solidarity that these people built in their dedication to overthrowing the current government.  After being there behind the sharpened bamboo sticks and barricades I believe they may be successful.
