#THAILAND : #RED SHIRTS #UDD to hold mass rally in Ayutthaya Saturday



March 11 – The United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), Thailand’s red shirt movement, has announced its plan to hold a major rally in central Ayutthaya province Saturday to show support for the elected government.

UDD leader Thida Thavornseth briefed the press today about the rally, emphasising that the movement will continue to fight for democracy and show that they oppose a military coup. Mrs Thida said that supporters are people striving to protect democracy, but lately there have been attempts to counter the UDD’s political legitimacy.

In response to an earlier  PDRC statement, Mrs Thida called on the anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) to present a clearer reform process for the country.

She said that the UDD rejected PDRC’s demand for a neutral prime minister and said that the PDRC should also clarify how the country would be after reforms.

UDD spokesperson Thanawut Wichaidith meanwhile dismissed the PDRC allegation of people being recruited for armed struggle, claiming that all UDD supporters would witness peacefully for democracy.

Mr Thanawat urged UDD supporters from across the country to meet in Ayutthaya province this Saturday.

Some supporters will also travel by boat from other provinces to join the Ayutthaya rally, he said.

The spokesperson said the rally is planned in Ayutthaya to avoid clashes with PDRC protesters in the capital. The movement on Saturday only aims to warn the PDRC not to destroy democracy. He claimed that the PDRC reform plans would only serve the elites.

Mr Thanawut then called on PDRC leader Suthep Thaugsuban to stop using a statement: “Overthrowing the Thaksin Regime” as it implies that the PDRC are also against UDD supporters who back Mr Thaksin.

UDD leader Worachai Hema, meanwhile, stressed that using weapons cannot bring victory to the people, while another leader, Korkaew Pikulthong, said the PDRC statement on Monday was a disappointment as it mentioned nothing clearly about the reform.

Mr Korkaew asked the PDRC to begin reforming itself first as it is what society wants to see most.

Another UDD leader, Weng Tojirakan echoed the sentiment, saying that UDD always supports the country’s reforms, but not reforms led by Mr Suthep. (MCOT )

#THAILAND #Daily Attacks on #ANTI #GOVERNMENT #PROTESTERS #tightened #security @ #Lumpini site

March 11 – An anti-government protest leader on Tuesday ordered a security beef up following a string of violent attacks near protest sites in the capital, with the latest explosion at Lumpini Park wounding three volunteer guards, one seriously.

Three anti-government protesters rallying at Lumphini park were injured when a M 79 grenade landed near a tent where protesters were staying overnight and exploded before dawn today.


The protest leader’s reaction came shortly after an explosion occurred in an area just 500 metres from Lumpini Park, the main protest site, early this morning.

A 32-year-old man, identified as Ullmani Sewon, who is also a volunteer guard in the PDRC medical team, was seriously wounded and sent to nearby Chulalongkorn Hospital. He is now in stable condition in the Intensive Care Unit. Two other volunteer guards were slightly wounded.

Thaworn Senneam, a key leader of the anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC), said the daily attacks had nothing to do with the anti-government protesters but the caretaker government must be held accountable for the violence as it is enforcing the special security law.

Following the latest violence, Mr Thaworn said he asked the police to set up checkpoints along with the ones erected by the PDRC guards at Wireless Road. To ensure the protesters safety, a protective net has been installed around the makeshift stage and all guards will be on high alert to avert any untoward incident.

Mr Thaworn said he opposed the enforcement of the emergency decree as which adversely affected the country’s economy. The Internal Security Act enforcement does not bode well either.

Hours earlier, an M79 grenade hit the Chaeng Wattana Road near superstore Lotus but no one was injured. Police investigators said the gunman could have fired the grenade from a street near Klong Prapa Chaeng Wattana. The target was likely to be a security checkpoint manned by police and soldiers just 50 metres from the scene. (MCOT)
