Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra dissolved parliament and called for new elections this morning in her latest attempt to appease anti-government protesters who have been taking to the streets of Bangkok for over a month. The protests initially started over an amnesty bill that would have seen Yingluck’s brother and former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra return from exile and absolved of graft charges.
