The yellow shirts told the Thai government if they do not deal with the red-shirt protesters in the next 15 days, the yellow shirts will take to the streets to protect the country themselves, said yellow-shirt leaders after a meeting at Rangsit University in Bangkok on Sunday morning. The meeting was also attended by 3,000 yellow-shirt supporters.
The yellow shirts are the group that originally brought down the government of ex-Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in 2006. After months of street protests the military launched a successful coup.
The red shirts, loyal to Thaksin, have wreaked havoc in Bangkok over the past several weeks. Thus far, 23 people have been killed in anti-government riots and clashes with police. The yellow shirts say that they support the monarchy.
