Thailand's pro-government Red Shirt demonstrators have started to gather 12 miles outside of the center of Bangkok, right at the heart of the anti-government protests being led by the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). If upcoming court rulings go as anticipated, Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is likely to be ousted from power — and the PDRC is saying they will appoint their own unelected leader in her place. If this happens, Red Shirt leaders and their supporters have said that they will come out and fight, putting the country at risk of quickly spiraling into Civil War.
