Moderator Anchalee Paireerak on stage (19.57): Department of Investigation (DSI) secretary-general Tharit Pengdit said today that he would seek arrest warrants for all those who made cash donations to Sutheb Thaugsuban during the warm-up rallies and caught on closed-circuit camera footage.
(20:21): So let me stress again – our protest tomorrow is to unseat this sham caretaker government who stubbornly refuse to leave.
(20:42): As for me, I’ll start early in the morning at Wong Wian Yai to lead the Thonburi faction to Lumpini park. After that, I’ll be visiting every satellite stage before returning to Democracy Monument at 6 pm. My rally here will be broadcast to our Satellite stages
We had so many protesters on 2 Dec. that we’re setting up multiple satellite stages all over Bangkok for tomorrow. One of the points is Rachaprasong intersection that the UDD took over in 2010, but unlike certain violent red shirt protesters, our movement is civilized and peaceful.
(20:31): More and more citizens are taking to the streets. Yingluck has fled to the north and northeast in the hopes that we would tire of protesting. She’s enlisted DSI head Tharit, but what has that achieved? Yingluck, you can freeze our accounts, but you can never freeze the inspired donations from the people!
(20:26): The Election Commission initially cautioned against going forth with the Feb. 2014 elections. But once they met with Yingluck they started singing a different tune. Thus, it’s up to us, the people, to march to them and make them listen!
(20:31): Civil servants and officers, listen to us! The government is no longer legitimate. Can’t you see reform is needed before the next election?
(20:37): Bangkokians, please use public transport tomorrow, especially the MRT and BTS. We’re shutting down the city for half of the day.
(20:39): We will have main satellite stages at Victory Monument, Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (Hor Silp Krungthep), Lumpini park/start of Silom Road, Rachaprasong intersection, and Asoke junction.
(20:15): In no other country would a law whitewashing graft and corruption be passed – no country except Thailand, where the puppet PM is the sister of the fugitive criminal.
(20:18): Yingluck, millions of Thais have taken to the street to chase you from office. You and your government – apart from losing legal legitimacy – have also lost political legitimacy.
(20:22): In addition to unseating the government, we’re taking to the streets tomorrow to show our dedication to undertaking reforms before the next election. Electoral laws and political party reforms, these must all be done, as well as strengthening corruption laws, decentralizing authority to allow provincial gubernatorial elections, increase the accountability of the police, and to address social welfare issues. Once this is done, in the 8, 10, or 14 months it may take, elections will be held.
(20:05): Our donation tally from our warm-up rally amounts to over 7 million baht. Today we received additional donations of over 1 million baht. Thank you again, DSI.
(20:46): Anchalee Paireerak is leading the procession to Yingluck’s residence tomorrow morning at 9 am. Whistles should be gently blown to avoid scaring Yingluck.
(20:44): Tomorrow will be another day for the history books. You are all welcome to speak on any of the stages we’ve set up for tomorrow. The power belongs to all of you, the people, so please share your views on reform and where Thailand should be headed.
(20:47): Once we complete tomorrow’s mission, we still have Monday’s task waiting. I vow again that I will always stand by your side to fight this good battle. Thank you and good night!
