Thai protesters resume siege of PM's offices

   BANGKOK (AP) — Anti-government protesters in Thailand's capital have resumed their tactic of besieging government offices, cutting off electricity to the prime minister's office compound and demanding that police abandon the premises.

   The protesters, who are seeking to force the replacement of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government before a Feb. 2 election, threatened Thursday to force their way in if police don't leave.

   In a previous confrontation, police withdrew from the compound to allow the demonstrators in without a fight. That withdrawal came after two days of increasingly violent standoffs.

   Demonstrators in St. Louis and elsewhere are calling for maternity practices that put mothers and babies ahead of hospitals and insurance companies.  

   Dozens line Brentwood Boulevard on Labor Day for a "Rally To Improve Birth" demonstration.  It was one of 170 rallies nationwide calling for reducing medical interventions and reducing the rate of cesarean section.  

   Organizers point to United Nations data that shows that the US ranks 45th worldwide in maternal safety even though it has the highest maternity health costs in the world.

   Many in St. Louis are upset over the George Zimmerman verdict.  About 500 people marched in downtown St. Louis Sunday evening.  

   Many demonstrators said they were marching to show support for Trayvon Martin's family.  Most say they're calling for federal charges or a civil suit against Zimmerman who was acquitted in a criminal trial Saturday.  

   The St. Louis march was mostly peaceful, with a small splinter group getting police attention after overturning a dumpster.  Four were arrested.  

   Organizers say another march is planned for Thursday.
