Two quick videos of yesterday’s red shirt protests

In addition to the images of the red shirt protests I posted yesterday, I wanted to share a couple of mobile phone videos I shot. ((Gadget-related aside: Yes, I took these with my trusty Nokia E71. Its keypad may be too small, but its multimedia capabilities and web browsing are decent.))

These videos are far from masterful, technically speaking, but I wanted to give you a sense of what the demonstrations look and sound like.

Please note that both of these videos were shot yesterday — Sat., March 13, 2010. (The protests are still continuing, and I don’t want there to be any confusion about when I recorded these.)

Here’s a 360-degree look at the red shirts gathered around the main stage area around 6:30 p.m. yesterday. (Direct link to the video is here, and it’s embedded below.)

And here’s a look at pedestrians cheering red shirt protesters near Victory Monument yesterday. (Direct link to the video is here, and it’s embedded below.)
