Photo essay: Red shirt resurgence in Thailand

Facebook chat with Ooi a photographer at the September 19 Red Shirts rally at Ratchaprasong Intersection to mark the fourth anniversary of the last military coup and four months since the bloody military repression of the mass protest camp in this area:

Me: Wow! What a fantastic crowd your pics show!

Ooi: Thanks. I was amazed at the crowd yesterday.

Me: How many do you think?

Ooi: About 10,000 – 12,000. We calculate by using  sampling space. We work out how many people in one square metre and calculate the area.
