Bangkok Shutdown has been in effect for over two weeks as the anti-government protesters continue to block major intersections. The Thai government imposed a 60-day state of emergency in Bangkok and the surrounding provinces in an attempt to cope with the on-going political turmoil but so far this decree has had no effect on the mass protests.
