We have just come back - the protesters announce the night before where they will be protesting - what intersections and building they will be blocking off. We got around using the BTS and avoided the protest areas. The one day that we were at the same place as a rally very big crowd very noisy - but at no time did we feel threatened. the whole crowd stopped for the singing of the National anthem - that was surreal - The only issue we had was been able to get to the airport on time -

It would be safer if you don't travel with protesters. They are an ornery bunch. I would leave them at home!

Exactly - there is a reason embassy websites tell one to stay away from protesters. Things can turn to sh*te really quickly.
