Thai pro-government rally of September 3

Richard Barrow was there live at a gathering of the yellow shirt anti-government mob, who would eventually take over both Government House and the main airports in Bangkok. These actions precipitated the fall of the PPP led government in December. Barrow blogged:
I heard yesterday that the Democratic Alliance Against Dictatorship (DAAD) were moving their rally site from Sanam Luang to the city hall at Samut Prakan. This was due to the recent emergency decree forbidding five people or more gathering in one place. I decided to go and check them out for myself. But first, I had to make a careful decision on what colour I would wear. . .
