The leader of Thailand’s anti-government movement has announced new targets for his supporters as protests appear set to continue.

Suthep Thaugsuban called for demonstrators to take over the police headquarters in Bangkok in a defiant speech late on Monday.

It came after clashes broke out as protesters tried to storm the prime minister’s office.

The Thai prime minister has rejected protesters’ demands that she step down.

Yingluck Shinawatra said she was open to negotiations but that calls for the government to be replaced by an appointed council was illegal and unconstitutional.

personal thought:

It’s like Thailand has TWO opposing ‘U.S. style, Tea Parties’; gawd, what a mess!
