Red-Shirt Protesters

Protesters in Thailand are annoying! During the Songkran festival and some time leading up to it Thaksin supporters blocked roads at various places around the country.

The following video shows me running into a roadblock halfway to Lampang, and having to return to Chiang Mai after already taking massive detours up until that point. It was at most annoying and a waste of petrol for me personally, but I can imagine others having big problems at this point.

As far as I know, the only violence happened in Bangkok when a few people got fed up with protesters burning buses or something. Yes, I did watch the news, but it was still Songkran- a 3-5 day nationwide water fight. Next video I'll show some of that.

That probably didn't happen. People get beat up a bit there, and maybe they just happened to be wearing colored shirts, but no political-related violence has happened apart from some bus-burning ruckus down in BKK.
