Right now, an end to the ongoing standoff between the People’s Alliance for Democracy and the Thai government seems as distant as ever. We will probably not be making any substantial posts on the situation in Bangkok over the next day or so. But we are, as always, very keen to host comments that make informed contributions to understanding the conflict. If you have something to say please post it as a comment to this open thread and we will moderate it as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience and insights.
