Thai protesters vow 'final push'

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Thai anti-government protesters vowed to continue fighting on Sunday (May 18) after protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban promised a final push for an alternative prime minister. The protesters are planning to stage mass rallies in coming days and Suthep said if this final push in the six-month fight did not succeed, he would surrender to the authorities on May 27. Some protesters said they would fight on even if they lose their leader. Thailand has been in turmoil since the protests flared up in November, the latest phase in nearly a decade of antagonism between the Bangkok-based establishment and supporters of former premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who won huge support among the rural and urban poor but was ousted by the army in 2006.
