    Thailand is no stranger to protests. There is nothing new in the looming schism in the country that is dividing supporters and opponents of the Pheu Thai Party, a third reincarnation of the political entity that supports Thai ex-Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s henchmen. Thaksin Shinawatra was ousted from power through a coup in 2006 and had to flee the country. These events triggered a whole series of internal political crises in Thailand, each of which helped to contribute further to the deepening schism. An attempt in 2013 by the government to have the parliament adopt a law granting amnesty, which would have given Shinawatra a chance of a comeback, put into question the very future of the country’s political system.
