What happens at night – a timelapse video of the Bangkok protests

The Bangkok protests come alive at night when workers across the capital head to rally stages swelling the more modest number of demonstrators able to spend all day fighting their cause.

Street vendors do a roaring trade feeding the hungry masses their evening meal and providing them with protest essentials including whistles, flags and hair-bands. 

Bangkok Post reporters spent a night filming at Victory Monument and Ratchaprasong intersection. 

The music accompanying the video is a famous protest song called “su mai toi” or “no backing down”. It was composed by Seksan Prasertkul a former leader of the student protests that culminated in the October 14, 1973 uprising.
