Red-shirts to stage mass demonstration on April 5


BANGKOK, 24 March 2014 The United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) will stage mass rallies nationwide on April 5.

Red-shirt leader Jatuporn Promphan, who has recently been appointed as UDD chairman, announced that red-shirt supporters would don black on March 29th to express their disagreement with the Charter Court’s ruling to have Feb 2 general election nullified on grounds that it was not held in one single day as required under Section 108 of the Constitution.

He also told red-shirt followers across Thailand to prepare for their biggest rallies on April 5th. The locations will be announced later.

The announcement was made during the UDD gathering in Pattaya on Sunday (Mar 23).

Jatuporn said the forthcoming rallies are aimed at fighting for justice and democracy in the country as well as showing support for Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra who is currently facing charges for her negligence in government’s rice support program.
