About 100 red-shirts rallied in front of the head office of Thai Rath newspaper on Vibhavadi Rangsit road on Tuesday afternoon, demanding action against cartoonist Somchai Katanyutanan, better known by his pen name Chai Ratchawat. 

The red-shirts, led by Chatchawal Kritchanasut and Jutipong Poommoon, demanded to know what action the newspaper had taken against one of its most popular cartoonists.
