Woman stages high-up protest at skytrain station

There was strange incident at the Thong Lor skytrain station yesterday. A young lady held a one-woman protest dangling over the edge of a walkway about 30 feet above the road. It was all a bit weird as the protester was holding a sign with something scrawled on it nobody could read, so no-one was really sure what she was protesting about. Her aim was to draw media attention to her plight, but it didn't really work as I haven't seen this written about anywhere. Maybe a reader might have some further insight.

The woman was eventually persuaded to clamber back to safety, but not before the road was closed off and a firetruck crane elevated to her position. At one point a cop tried to grab her hand, which wasn't a great move. The lady was clearly distressed about something.

Any ideas?

Addendum: Kaewmala has the answer:

She is trying to call attention to Thaksin's misdeeds. Apparently she is extremely concerned that redshirts don't know how bad he is. She wants to expose Mr T's evil for redshirts to consider before the Bangkok governor election. True, the handwritten sign could have been bigger.

* I edited my post to remove a line about the deed she's holding along with her sign as nobody seems to know what it is, or if it's even a deed.

    Thais have been throughly brainwashed by their "Khon Thai Plow?" campaign. Even if Thaksin did no wrong, he would still be crucified.

    I am seeing the incident from a different perspective and salute her for very strong determination in fighting for whatever message she carries. Only a few of us share similar attitude.
