<p>The Thai media has treated constitutional amendments as a politicking game and has de facto reflected a new series of battles between the post-coup Thaksin and non-Thaksin forces, according to the four-member Media Inside Out research team.</p>
<p><em>by Chairit Yonpiam and Cholthicha Lermthong, </em><a href=""><em>Post Today</em></a></p> <p>Numbers were not the point of the latest yellow-shirt rally, because the rally was aimed at exposing the Abhisit government&rsquo;s hidden agenda in amending the constitution, to show the public that this government could not be trusted, said Suriyasai Katasila, coordinator of the People&rsquo;s Alliance for Democracy (PAD), in an interview with Post Today about the low turnout of PAD supporters in front of Parliament on 23-25 Nov. </p>
<p>Hundreds of supporters of the People&rsquo;s Alliance for Democracy came out to protest against charter amendments in front of Parliament.&nbsp; Sondhi Limthongkul demanded a referendum prior to any amendments, while Praphan Koonmee said outright that he wished for a coup today, and without a coup Abhisit would never have become Prime Minister. </p>
