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.
