Demonstrators occupy grounds of Government House

Daybreak in Bangkok and the Thai capital resembles a war zone. Garbarge and plastic water bottles fill the streets after more than a week of anti-government demonstrations. Soon enough- protests pick up again with the same force seen in recent days. Here a group of demonstrators bring down a concrete barrier in front of the Government House where Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's office are located. Later police announced they had allowed demonstrators onto the grounds around the Government House in an effort to ease tensions. The protesters want Yingluck to step down. She has so far refused, but has said she wants an end to the violence and is willing to negotiate. December 5th marks the 86th birthday of Thai King Bhumibol. And as the majority of demonstrators support the monarchy, it's unlikely they will continue any provocations with police. At least on that day.
