In Thailand, anti-government protesters marched through Bangkok on January 7, rallying support for a larger demonstration next week and calling the for the resignation of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

"Everything that this government has said or done is all wrong and they are pretending that it is right. I disagree with this," she said. "That's why I have to come to join Suthep."

"The protests may hurt the country's overall economy," according to BBC.

The protesters, led by ex-Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban, aim to appeal to political reforms and the replacement of the current government with a non-partisan administration before the elections next month.
