Bangkok Shutdown 2014

By late 2013, a mass movement to protest against the elected government of Yingluck Shinawatra – sister of former premier Thaksin Shinawatra – was gathering strength. The so-called PDRC (People’s Democratic Reform Committee) blocked several major intersections, pledging in January 2014 to ‘Shutdown Bangkok’. The protests peaked with the successful disruption of the February 2, 2014 elections: in districts such Rachathewi, seen here, ballot boxes were impounded by demonstrators. The protests largely fizzled out by March, but had helped create the conditions for May 22, 2014 military coup.
