Today was a big one for the anti-amnesty protests in Bangkok. The main event was the Uruphong protesters moving into the ISA area and setting up a new rally site near Makkhawan Bridge on Ratchadamnoen Nok Avenue. The whistle blowers were back today but this time at BTS Asok on Sukhumwit road. There were a view great shots looking down at the protests which you will see below. There was also a protest march by Thammasat Alumni. The Samsen protest group led by the Democrat Party are still at Democracy Monument on Ratchadamnoen Klang Avenue.
