Pro-govt Red Shirts declare major rally Saturday


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.
