Red-shirts to stage mass rally in Bangkok this Saturday

Recommended Posts

Oh <deleted>, I'm coming from Hua Hin to Bkk this Saturday.. is this going to make my journey go all tits up?

Better carry a few more spare tyres.

Suthep/PAD has been on stage sharing about experience of nail scatted on the N-S highway to prevent southern protesters from reaching BKK.

My question maybe off topic but . . . Where do these people go? You know what I mean since there are no public toilets.

In some of the pictures over the past few days you see them holding umbrellas and is completely wet outside.. Well, this wasn't caused by the rain.

The question is.....WHY? Just to sit in a stadium and do nothing? What else can they do? Fighting in the streets with multicolours will surely see the military step in and a coup will ensue. The police are vastly outnumbered and can do nothing. I guess PT are just hoping Suthep will eventually pack his bags and go home. One thing is for sure there is never a dull moment in Thai politics.

So the Dems have shafted the poor and ignored them for decades - that's pretty true I think.

The problem is that the reds are shafting the poor as well - just more quickly and a little more deception and lying to them.

As others have said - politicians have zero regard for anything except their own personal gain and probably do not have the intellect to understand that their gain is at the expense of the progress of the nation, though probably have just enough intellect to understand it is at the expense of the poor.

I wish a third party would come along with a policy for zero- tolerance on corruption, a massive education and re-education program with much more emphasis on a English and Chinese second languages, a policy on professionalism in the professions with a defamation protected complaints procedure and willingness to remove the license of those guilty of unprofessionalism, a complete overhaul of the legal system to make it accessible and just and with teeth to stop people absconding, a policy on opening up the market free of controls on foreign businesses willing to invest and employ trained Thais, abolition of the subsidies and an overhaul of the tax system with the recruitment of staff to pursue tax and staff to oversee any corruption. A policy on kicking out any civil servant who is found guilty of corruption without right to pension. An elite crack force and special fast track court to prosecute corrupt police and government officials at every level.

I should write a manifesto

Is it just me, or can you hear the army fueling all their vehicles?

They are already fueled, but (a) wait to see if there is violence, and (B) wait to see if the police can control it.

Post 2010, the Army can't be viewed by Thai people as anything more than a peacekeeping force. If they end up having to become involved, the question is what will follow?

Info has been recently leaked to some of the Thai press as to what may be being discussed. This is not new.

My uneducated view is that if it ever comes to where the military has to become involved, it will be far down the road and returning things to status quo will not be an option.

As I asked on TV a few days ago, with zero responses, is Thailand ready for democracy?

These post are so funny from the ones who support the yellows and the ones that support the reds! There is really no difference between either party its all about money and greed, they could have picked any politician from either party and convicted him for what Thaskin has done or even worse, he was singled out over money and greed and pissing off the wrong people. This process will continue on until the puppets from both sides say enough is enough when it comes to corruption and greed and the likelyhood of that ever happening is far away since most Thais think corruption is just a way of life and accepted.

Thais definitely doesn’t think corruption is just a way of life and accepted. The Thais there think corruption is normal and accepted must come from issan where cheating is accepted and normal. My Thai wife fight corruption and I believe many others do too.

We just need the government to fight it too instead of accepting it.

So the Red-Shirt leaders are still not upset, about the attempts by PTP to give a full-amnesty, to people who they claim ordered the murders of their comrades-in-arms three years ago ? blink.png

What very short memories, and conveniently forgetful ones too, these delightful people appear to have. whistling.gif

Why do the Red-masses still trust & follow them ? wink.png

Cos they're deaf, dumb, blind and stupid. Oh, and great at doing as they are told for a small fee.

Seems that could equally apply to the anti-govt mob who, after all, are just like the tea party on steroids.

Get the job done. Over with it.

Are you suggesting gassing the stadium with the red shirts in it. Most of them approved Hitler.

Sounds like the battle grounds and stands are chosen again. Great exactly what Thailand needs, another showdown.... facepalm.gif alt=facepalm.gif width=24 height=18>

Yes and because of Suthep's inflammatory and increasingly deranged language and his desire to change the peaceful massprotests into a revolution, this has been seen as a "red rag to a bull" to the redshirts <pun intended> and has given them an excuse to also go beyond peaceful massdemonstration themselves, which as we know from recent history, is a opportunity they are more than ready to embrace. The Anti-govt massprotests made a monumentally powerful statement when they called out so many hundreds of thousands peacefully, but when they started occupying buildings and causing disruption beyond mere traffic jams, they lost the authority to tell the red-shirts to also protest peacefully and to obey the law. Suthep's more recent actions and statements have made confrontation almost inevitable, whereas when it was just massprotest / placards / leaflets, the antigovt people had the floor and could criticise any affronts committed by the reds.

I think you misunderstand the anti government people. They don't want to just stand around and protest. They want the government to listen to them and make some changes. the government just ignored them to long and now they want action. 310 to 4 vote for a billl the government knew was unpopular even among some of their supporters kind of showed the anti government protestors that they were being ignored. Now Yingluck wants to talk it over.

What a change from dictate to discuss it.

double post due to site freeze /

Ya I get that also irritating.

Pro-govt Red Shirts declare major rally Saturday

By English News

13856043311597.jpg

BANGKOK, Nov 28 – The pro-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) plans a massive rally at Rajamangala Stadium on Saturday, its leaders announced.

UDD chairwoman Thida Thavornseth and leading member Jatuporn Prompan last night said the political situation has become critical and they would hold a big rally on Saturday to retaliate key anti-government leader Suthep Thaugsuban.

Mrs Thida called on Mr Suthep to stop intimidating the media and occupying government property – a serious offence that led to chaos among civil servants and the public.

Mr Jatuporn claimed that Rajamangala Stadium will be fully packed on Nov 30 when people will jointly protest against Mr Suthep.

The rally will continue until the former Democrat MP calls it quits, he vowed. (MCOT online news)
