Red shirt protest

, April 5, 2014

Pro-government "red shirt" protest leader Jatuporn Prompan (C) waves to his supporters during a rally in Nakhon Pathom province on the outskirts of Bangkok on April 5. Thousands of supporters of Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra travelled by bus, pickup truck and train on Saturday to join a three-day rally on the outskirts of Bangkok aimed at countering months of sometimes violent anti-government protests. In their largest show of force in months, the pro-government "red shirts", or United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship as the group is formally known, said they were prepared to thwart any move to dismiss Yingluck who faces mounting legal cases that could see her removed from office in coming weeks.  Reuters/Chaiwat Subprasom
