Thousands of anti-government protesters took to the streets of Bangkok on Monday, blocking major intersections of the Thai capital in an attempt to oust the government of embattled Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. 

The demonstrators want Shinawatra to resign to make way for an appointed government that would oversee electoral reforms to curb the political dominance of her billionaire family and tackle a wider culture of money politics.

Protesters gathered at major intersections in the heart of the city in an attempt to "shutdown" the capital, which has been the scene of street protests for months.
