When I read the news this morning my first thought was ' The protestors are winning this & the Dinosaurs are running scared.   More power to the youngun's elbows. 

Totally disagree with you, it is slowly growing, and soon the whole country will be involved. Your idol and his cronies have already shown that they are running scared with this mornings announce

The army desperados think this will stifle dissent. I doubt it will. They are so despised at this point, this draconian move will only make things worse.   And in addition, this will stifle

URGENT: MRT has just announced that they have closed ALL of their stations across #Bangkok on the Blue Line. At the moment, the Purple Line, ARL and BTS are operating as normal. This is due to the planned #ม็อบ17ตุลา protest at train stations at 3pm #Thailand
 
 
Isn’t it ironic that the preventive measures by the Thai government to stop the #ม็อบ17ตุลา taking place is leading to a #BangkokShutdown? Like yesterday they closed major roads which forced shopping malls to close. Now it looks like the rail system in #Bangkok will shutdown too.

I was expecting this today but your confirmation is evidence.  good ..... thank you.

An annoyed Richard Barrow! He’s right. It’s an absurd overreaction and only makes the Thai authorities look weak and panicky in the face of a movement mostly of teenagers and people in their 20s.

The Thai government has ordered the complete shutdown of the electric train network in #Bangkok in anticipation that there MIGHT be a #ม็อบ17ตุลา protest rally SOMEWHERE in the capital. No BTS or MRT trains running. This #BangkokShutdown wasn’t done by the protesters #Thailand

And yet it did not work, the protestors did an end around and now the Government really has egg on it's face, and they have also disenfranchised those who wanted to stay out of the fray, but the Government dragged them into it anyway.
