  1. Yellow shirts call for military

    Thailand: Right-wing yellow shirt activists called on embattled Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to unleash the military against democracy protesters yesterday to end the “anarchy” in Bangkok, a day after clashes turned a busy motorway into a deadly battle zone.

    The re-emergence of the yellow shirts – best known for leading mass protests that shut down Bangkok’s airports for a week in 2008 – added to the volatility on the streets of the Thai capital, where a seven-week stand-off has killed at least 27 people and wounded nearly 1,000.

    Yellow shirt leaders handed a petition to representatives of the government and army asking that “brave soldiers help us get rid of this illegal activity.”
