BANGKOK, THAILAND - 2014/02/10: A Thai rice farmer carries a stubble of rice straw as he joins a rally in front of the temporary office of the cabinet of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, in Bangkok. Rice farmers protested demanding that the government pays for their rice under the rice-pledging scheme. An ambitious rice buying program that Thailand's ruling party hoped would uplift millions of its poor rural supporters may end up helping to bring down the increasingly cornered government.
