Barricades Burning Bangkok 2010


A barricade burning in the Bangkok Protests / Riots 2010. Thailand has been racked by instability ever since the 2006 coup – one of 18 revolutions the country has experienced. The coup deposed Thaksin, accusing him of corruption. A deeply divisive figure, the populist leader is well known in the UK for his brief ownership of Manchester City football club. He enjoys strong support from the rural poor but is largely loathed by urban Thais. Anti-Thaksin supporters, backed by the army, wanted a return to the status quo: a government that is pro-monarchy and looks after the interests of the urban elite rather than those of the countryside. The country is deeply divided and the country's politicians seem unable to bridge the gap.
