Filed under: Feature Story,News — voaburmese @ 7:47 pm

The Thai government rejected a proposal led by the Thai Senate to meet with the opposition group leaders, also known as the Red Shirts. On Wednesday, the Red Shirts protested for hours in the capital’s Lumpini Park; later on the Thai military cracked down on the protest camp. 14 people died at the demonstration site and 7 of the Red Shirt leaders were arrested on Wednesday.
