Anti-government red shirt protesters shout slogans holding a poster with a defaced photo of Thailand’s Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva reading “Arrest warrant, live or dead – a prime minister who ordered mass killing of the public” during a protest in central Bangkok July 18, 2010. Despite the state of emergency in Thai capital that bans such gatherings, several hundreds red shirts demonstrated at the site of their former encampment and protests in Bangkok’s shopping district that culminated in bloody clashes with Thai troops two months ago.
