Thai protesters defy police crackdown

Anti-government protesters in Thailand have returned to the streets in defiance of the police, who attempted to clear protest sites near the government headquarters in Bangkok. Demonstrators listened to public addresses a day after the police tried to dismantle barricades and occupation infrastructure as the protests continue to grow.
