Thai security forces have used tear gas against anti-government protesters who stormed the grounds of the opposition television channel, which was shut down by the government this week.

Thousands of “Red Shirts” traveled by pickup trucks and motorcycles to the studios of the “People Channel,” located several kilometers north of Bangkok in the Pathum Thani suburb.  

They were demanding the government reopen the station, which was taken off the air after Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva declared a state of emergency.  

Thai military officials had warned they would use force to disperse the demonstrators, including rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons.  

The emergency decree was issued after hundreds of Red Shirts stormed the Thai parliament and forced lawmakers to flee.  

Arrest warrants have been issued for at least 17 Red Shirt leaders in connection with last Saturday’s takeover of Bangkok’s commercial district.
