The article provides an outlook on the increased anti-government protests in Thailand in early June 2008. It is expected that the government will take a cautious approach toward protestors, not to add grist to the opposition forces which could create a possible rationale for another coup. Investors remain impatient as a consequence of this uncertainty, with potential further implications for the stock market and the baht.
