Bangkok Paralized

Yesterday around 60,000 members of the anti-government protesters (UDD) stormed out and block Ratchaprasong intersection (the intersection in front of Central World, Gaysorn Plaza, Erawan hotel). The UDD marched from their base at the Phan Fa Bridge to the intersection about 11.20 AM on Saturday and refused to mover until the government agreed to step down. All the malls around that area have been closed since noon yesterday. The deputy secretary-general of the Thai Chamber of Commerce said economic losses from the intersection takeover could reach 500 million baht a day. The government tried to negotiate with their leader but it's failed. The report said police would start making arrests under the act. 

This would get ugly...
