Book review: Thailand’s Crisis and the Fight for Democracy

Why thousands of red movement supporters flooded the Bangkok and other cities of the Thailand since year 2007?

Are these red movements represent the interest of Ex Premier of Thailand, Thaksin?
Or ,there are more than this?

The people uprising in the last April 2010 seems to be the biggest mass revolt against towards the right wing forces and militaries in Thailand.

However, the aspirations were actually reflected by the diversities of the groups and demands within this red movement. It is a movement actually that is leaning towards to revolt the current status quo/ system that places the elites and ring wing forces interest.
