Today's Developments

Very worrying developments today:

* The battles with Cambodia are on going and expanding...

* The army staged another show of force to protect the monarchy and show support for army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha.

* 750 people called "Thai national development participants" from 14 northeastern provinces went to the army headquarters to present flowers to Gen Prayuth. These former communist insurgents, wearing pink shirts, were brought to Bangkok by the Internal Security Operations Command (Isoc) in 14 buses. Before this, they went to Siriraj Hospital to sign a book to wish well His Majesty the King.

* A source said the Isoc, which has formed mass organisations with over 700,000 members throughout the country, plans to organise "masses in pink" to protect the monarchy. Another pink army to fight the redshirts?

* 6 Red Shirt radio stations have been completely shut-down today as of now. Many more are being raided countrywide. Red Shirts are also resisting in many locations.

There is a concern that another coup will take place to prevent a democratically elected government taking power in upcoming elections. To get up-to-date news on the increasingly overt intimidation from the Thai military along with the arrests they make and other events see 'We're Watching the Thai Military' on Facebook.
