According to the BBC, thousands of protesters have come to Bangkok to rally for the cause of deposing current Prime Minister Abhisit Vejajjiva. The red shirts maintain that Vejajjiva’s government is illegitimate and that he needs to step down from his office. However, Vejajjiva has refused to step down and is currently seeking refuge at a military base in Thailand while the protests rage on around the Government House.In a television statement, Vejajjiva stated that, “if the demonstration is still within the law the government does not object to holding negotiations,” according to the BBC. The reds shirts are not very receptive to the idea of compromise. They are seeking to reinforce their numbers by the weekend.
