Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is in trouble

After hours of marches through the city the anti-government protesters eventually stopped at the government complex in central Bangkok to stay there overnight and continue their protests on November 28. Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuba said he decided to camp outside the area. He voiced his opinion that is was “only a matter of days” until the government will have no other choice than to step down.

Earlier on November 27, the Department of Special Investigation (DSI), Thailand’s equivalent of the FBI, was a prime target of some 17,000 protesters and had to be evacuated. The protesters also rallied at other ministries, escalating their demonstrations against the government and demanding it to step down

The other ministries were the Commerce, Culture, Energy, Industry, Labour, Natural Resources and Environment, Public Health, Social Development and Human Security and Science and Technology ministries where officials partly stopped working and joined the marches, while others fled.

The government moved to counter the demonstrations and officials sought arrest warrants for other leaders of the protest, besides Suthep Thaugsuban. But they were hesitant as these arrest could worsen the situation. The DSI together with the justice minister have reportedly set up a war room in the parliament building.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra urged protesters to refrein from blocking ministries from work, but also reiterated that the government will “definitely not use force to disperse the protesters”.
