of the Thailand protests are related to the ‘red
shirts’. The chaos get on the international airport
from the Thailand’s capital Bangkok, in 2008,
blocked because of a huge meeting of the opposition.
3.000 passengers, the most of them foreign citizens,
spent the night in terminal after a grenade exploded
and injured three people.
8.000 protestants took the Bangkok airport’s control
and no airplay landed or took off without their
accord. Hundreds of air races were cancelled or left
with big delays. Violent manifestations also took
place on the capital’s streets.
In April 2010, the
Thai soldiers have order to open the fire against the
protestants from Bangkok in case that they can’t
reject them using the nonlethal weapons and the Thai
premier thought of imposing the martial law.
The ‘red shirts’, the anti-governmental
protestants from Bangkok, gave up on the protests after the
Thai army occupied the downtown warning that will open the
fire against the protestants. The security forces can use

the power in 2006, occupied Bangkok for more than a month
and asked for the Government’s resignation about which they
say it’s illegitimate because it was chosen by the
parliamentary’ s vote and not by the people’s vote.
At least 25 people died and another 800 were injured
in Bangkok from the beginning of the Thailand
protests and the local and international observers
are afraid that the things will degenerate once with
the sending of the armed soldiers on streets.
The witnesses of the bloody confrontations said that
the soldiers opened the fire against the
protestants, a fact that led to the fast escalation
of the violence, making hundreds of victims. After
couple of months, Thailand gave up on the emergency
state in three provinces, including the capital,
