Election Day – Bangkok, some scenes from yesterday

Most of these were taken at the Siam Sq interchange – which is usually one of the busiest junctions in central Bangkok. It’s also one of the ‘shutdown’ sites and has been taken over by anti-government protesters. As you can see, they have some fairly serious installations: stages, sound systems, sun protection etc… No idea how long this will last, but so far it’s been going about 3 weeks.
