Blood Red in Bangkok | Thailand

In Bangkok between March to May 2010, The United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) held a series of renewed political protests against the current Democrat party led government, which they saw as having come to power illegitimately, in order to seek a dissolution of parliament and allow for fresh elections to take place.
These ?red shirt? protests, as they came to be known, gradually took over central parts of Bangkok including the commercial district at Ratchaprasong intersection, causing offices, hotels and businesses to close. Thousands joined the rallies, including whole families, elderly men and women, and even young children, most of whom hailed from the farming heartlands of northern and northeastern Thailand.
As the protests dragged on, and after repeated requests to end the rallies, the government finally gave the order through its Centre for the Resolution of Emergency Situations, for the Royal Thai Army to move in and forcibly end the demonstrations.

"These images give a very brief overview of the emotions and passion of what I witnessed whilst photographing the protests during the hottest part of the Thai summer when daily temperatures were reaching in excess of 40 degrees Celsius."
