Regjeringen ønsker å foreta en lov som gir tidligere Statsminister Taksin mulighet til å komme hjem til Thailand.
Gul skjorter foretar nå en volsom protest mot dette nå.
Regjeringen har foretatt tiltak mot dette. Blandt annet blir statlige tvkanaler sensurert mot protestene.
Det sendes nå direktesendt tv mot protestene på kabel tv.
Men alle statlige kanaler er sensurert . Det sies fra motpart til Taksin at det er blitt betalt penger for å ikke vise protestene.

Protesters vow to push through police
" fight against an amnesty bill due for former premier Thaksin Shinawatra "
The group says the beneficiaries would include former premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who has been in self-imposed exile overseas since being handed a two-year prison sentence in 2008. As it stands, if he returns to Thailand he will have to serve the jail term.
Is this the way of an democrasy ? This look more like an dictatorship . To have family member to make an new law to a man that has done a criminal thing to avoid prison.
What is worst ? The man or the goverment ?
Then it should be leagal for other criminal to avoid prison, what is next. No punishment for drugs ????
"The government's closure of roads leading to parliament and Government House during the anti-amnesty bill protest has become a major inconvenience for workers and students in those areas. "
