Sudarat Keyuraphan

 

Pheu Thai Party MP and chief strategist Sudarat Keyuraphan expressed her support to pro-democracy youth and demanded that the government desist from using its authority to threaten or intimidate the protesters.

 

She posted a supporting message on her Twitter account, saying that she agreed with the three demands they have voiced; of ending the intimidation of people who voiced their opinion, dissolve Parliament, and rewrite the Constitution.

 

The only way to resolve the conflict was to comply with the protesters' demands and rewrite the charter for a better future.

 

Sudarat also expressed her concern for the safety of the students since some people might want to exercise dictatorial powers to create violence.

 

Chaturon Chaisang, former deputy prime minister and chief strategist of the defunct Thai Raksa Chart, said that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha was trying to use his tongue to get out of hot waters by offering words of compromise to the protesters while his government continued to threaten them.

 

Meanwhile, Pheu Thai spokesperson Anusorn Eiamsaard said that the government’s time was running out and Prayut had to decide carefully when he should step down.

Not only Sudarat but also not a princess but kinda is a princess Ubolratana. That seems to have triggered some dinosaurs though, who accused her of all sorts of things. And the Thai Enquirer also reported that various Phalang Pracharat members have some degree of support and want a dialogue with the students. Those with army backgrounds don't seem to mind sending in troops to restore obedience uhh.. 'order'.

Is it time to book one way tickets out of here (again)? 

I fear if this does kick off, things could get really ugly.

'The 15,000-plus students and others who protested at Thammasat Rangsit on August 10 issued what can only be termed truly revolutionary demands......' Asia Sentinel Aug 13

Much larger number than I had seen reported elsewhere.

The article 'Thai Students on a Collision Course with ******' is the best and most worrying I have read yet.

Sorry about the asterisks. but the Land of the Free is very touchy.
