Red Shirts Gear Up for Bangkok Election

Hundreds of Red Shirts gathered at UDD headquarters on Sunday to prepare for the upcoming gubernatorial elections in Bangkok. Similar seminars will be held over the coming weeks to train 10,000 Red Shirt volunteers who will monitor polling units throughout the province for foul play on March 3rd.

Sunday’s participants stated that their intentions are to ensure a clean and fair election. 

One Red Shirt commented,

This election is really about protecting Thailand’s fragile democracy. We hope to set an example for the whole country.

Another volunteer reaffirmed that the UDD is mobilizing for democracy, not for a particular candidate,

It doesn’t matter who wins the election so long as it is won fairly.

    Your efforts to ensure a fair election “no matter who wins” are commendable.

    Some think that the best thing that could happen in the long run is that the Dems win, albeit with the detested Abhisit claiming victory, to send a message to Thaksin & Company that there’s a serous price to be paid for turning their backs on red shirts and ignoring campaign promises to reform coup constitution.

    Thaksin and PT will start keeping their promises of reform only if they see real danger in their plans for “sleeping with the enemy.”
