Fight for Democracy

Two days before taking over the International airport, Suvarnabhumi, in Bangkok, the PAD (People Alliance for Democracy),  supporters and their leaders gathered at the occupied Parliament to discuss the changes needed for the country politics.

The yellow dressed supporters claimed their willing of keeping the Parliament blocked until the now former Prime Minister, Somchai Wongsawat, resigned from his position.

The government, composed by the People Power Party and two of its cohilition partners, was dissolved this week by a Thai court, decision seen by the anti-government supporters as a victory in their fight for Democracy.
