Stickman Bangkok posted [1] photos and crowd updates of day 3 of the ‘Bangkok Shutdown’ campaign.

Forget what I said about dwindling numbers. Wednesday night saw at least as many supporters out as Monday.

These are the sorts of scenes you can expect in downtown Bangkok if you are out and about at this time – and you just don't know when and where. As per today's previous update, Asoke was very quiet even late afternoon, and then early evening it was chaos. Like I said, the situation is fluid.

The political action is mean to pressure the incumbent prime minister to resign [2] and establish a ‘People's Council.’
