Thai Protests Continue
Story here. It seems the number of protesters has diminished. It's also interesting that the authorities appear to be facilitating some of the protest activity, or at least not impeding it. For example, police allowed protesters to get close enought to the Prime Minister's residence to engage in the symbolic throwing of human blood. This may undermine the protests to some extent. Protesters may seek more confrontation in order to draw support and sympathy (not to mention media coverage) for their cause.
