Thailand protests stoke economy concerns


Recommended Posts

In Thailand, anti-government protestors are preparing to take to the streets of Bangkok over the next week.

Campaigners involved in the "Bangkok shutdown" are calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

They are calling for political reforms and the replacement of the current government with a non-partisan administration before February's elections.

There have been two months of demonstrations so far, and the country's vast tourism industry is now starting to feel the heat.

And as the BBC's Jonathan Head reports from Bangkok, there are concerns the protests may hurt the country's overall economy.
