Thailand's "red shirt" protestors are planning their next move, in their attempt to dissolve the parliament.

They're hoping to shame the counter-protest movement who've called for an end to their campaign.

Meanwhile, the country's military has vowed to punish anti-government protesters if they march on Bangkok's central business district.

The Red Shirts are still camped in their base at a hotel and shopping area. They are planning their next move, a week after bloody clashes with security forces killed 24 people.
