Red Shirts' Blood Donation to Curse?

What's going on in Thailand? Guess everyone has read it on the net or newspapers and seen it on TV. Here's BBC news with a Youtube video fresh from Bangkok.
The red shirts showing support for the ousted PM Thaksin are donating 1 million cc of blood if Prime Minister Abhisit will step down from his post. If not, they will spill it over the Parliament House to curse him.
For us here, we just wish for peace to reign. If the red side takes over the house, the yellow side might protest again to topple down the leader and vice versa. When will all this vicious cycle of political chaos end?
Let's all pray for lasting peace in Thailand.

I hope the protests will be over soon. Some of my friends changed their vacation time in Bangkok to another date as not to be inconvenience during the protest.

@Jama, we do hope so. It's a pity that many people have put their vacations here on hold. So bad for your friends and for Thailand's economy.
Thanks for stopping by. I'm happy to return the favor.

Not sure what to think here...blood can cause a lot of sickness just laid out in public. I agree with the red cross. Maybe they could have a tea bag protest.
My Ruby Link for you

@Auntie E, that danger has already been pointed out but I don't know why Red Cross still allows it. Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, make it a friendly protest and mark it with Ruby Tuesday post.
