Thailand’s Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra could hardly hold back her tears in a TV speech on October 10, declaring that she will not step down as a caretaker premier until elections are held on February 2, 2014.

“I have backed down to the point where I don’t know how to back down any further,” Yingluck said, close to having tears in her eyes. She, however, quickly composed herself.

“Do you [anti-government protesters] want me to not even set foot on Thai soil?” Yingluck, also defense minister, complained.

Anti-government protesters of which around 3,000 are still camping around the Government House in Bangkok, gave Yingluck 24 hours to step down otherwise the street rallies would continue.

On December 1, tear gas grenades have been fired at protesters in Bangkok, including at this writer, causing a lot of chemically induced sobbing.
