Thai amnestyThree anti-government groups in Thailand have decided to escalate their protest aimed at ousting Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranont and Senate Speaker Nikom Wairatpanich. The intensified protest action was announced despite four coalition parties on November 9 agreed not to push on with a controversial amnesty bill in favour of former prime minister Thaksin Schinawatra if the Senate votes to reject it on November 11, the Bangkok Post reported.

The aim is to expel the government and the heads of the parliament because they have “proved to serve the interests of Thaksin”, the coalition said.

According to the statement, the Yingluck Shinawatra administration is “the government of Thaksin, by Thaksin and for Thaksin” and has brought on national crises on many fronts. The government has faced a number of corruption scandals in its policy administration, the coalition alleged.

In the statement, the alliance said it will push for “major reforms by the people’s council”. The three groups are calling on the public to join their protest. The latest move comes after red-shirt supporters announced they would counter the anti-amnesty protests in Bangkok by staging mass pro-government demonstrations in several provinces.
