UDD Statement on 30 November 2013 & The Updated List of Injured Red Shirts

1. On 30th of November 2013, the co-leaders of The People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) have led groups of protestor to create disorder in the society in an attempt to install a new state power. During the course of this civil disruption, the protestors have acted in a complete disregard of the law of the country and the constitution of Thailand by storming and seized various governmental grounds including; Government House, Police Head Quarter, Metropolitan Police Bureau, and the Interior Minister etc. These actions of the protestors were meant to interrupt and destroy the governance power of this country and are amounted to an act of treason and terror. The effort to install a new government of their own under a new system while ignoring the voice of the majority and the democratic system are clear sign of treachery and whoever supported them can be consider as a traitor to this country. The supporters of the PDRC should ask themselves this question: Under what authority do the co-leaders have to seize down government institutions and install a new government of their own?

2. The caretaker government has the duty to suppress these acts of treason and return the county back to normalcy as soon as possible before this group of people can further destroys this country.

3. The United front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) and the Red Shirts supporters will continue to show our support for the government of the people and the democratic system. We will fight against any attempt to return this country back under the autocratic system of the aristocrats (Am-mart’s Ruled System – อำมาตยาธิปไตย). The leaders of the PDRC are hiding under the guise of the so called “people’s revolution” but their real intention is to take away the power of the people that is represented by the government and in the parliament. These governance powers derived from the people’s choice through the votes of 40 million people but the PDRC are trying to take it away and give it to the hands of a few conservative elites such as the Democrat Party and the extreme traditionalist. If they succeed, this country will begin to move backward in the development of politic, economy, society and eventually destroyed the entire foundation of the nation.

4. The action which meant to harm the Red Shirts supporters in anyway is an attempt to instigate violence and civil confrontation by the co-leaders of the PDRC. The UDD would like to ask the people who acted under the leadership of Suthep Thaugsuban to stop what they are doing because we do not want any harm to come to the people through confrontation.

    I have lived in Thailand for ten years.I have no political affiliations as I am a guest in this country.however I have watched with dismay the constant attempts,often successful,to bring down successive governments aligned to those who support taksin.

    The truth is that suthep and his anti democratic backers will not stop until they are certain that the people of the north and north east have their votes diluted.this is another power grab and unfortunately if you want to keep all the gains made for rural Thailand, you cannot sit back and let it happen.

    These attacks by suthep and the dinosaurs supporting him have to be stopped otherwise there will be civil war

    Force all red shirts to get a job and work for their living. Get educated and you will see that Taksin is there to enrich himself at your expense. He is stealing your future, the future of your children and even worse he is damaging the heart and sole of a once proud United Thailand.

    Taksin created this dictatorship by bribing the uneducated masses in the Thai countryside to vote for him. Votes have always been bought in Thai elections but Taksin used the extortionate profits he made from his AIS mobile phone company (a 15 years long government awarded sole Thailand concession of mobile phone service in Thailand). Taksin bought with hard cash politicians from major and minor opposition parties to form his own political party. These corrupt party deserters who care more about the money in their pockets than they ever cared for the Thai masses saw 1000 dollar notes flashing in their eyes and jumped at the opportunity to sleep with Taksin in his gold plated nest knowing that his cunning scheme to con and lure the uneducated Thai into voting for his party. Once in power he ran the country as a dictator and state corruption boomed feed his new political followers. The uneducated masses were fed with brainwashing money sweets financed from the countries dwindling national reserves. The politicians enriched themselves and and their friends got fat at the expense of the Thai economy and business sectors. The government was was not running the country, it was running its own self established fan club and this club was and still is being financed by the Thai tax payers. The vast majority of the uneducated masses do not pay any taxes, the are poor because they are work shy, lazy. They prefer to work for only eight weeks of the year planting rice and cassava and another six weeks of the year harvesting rice and cassava. Lazy is their middle name and that is why they are poor.

    The Taksin con is not sustainable, the country is adrift in the doldrums whilst government corruption steals 40% of the countries economy development projects. The uneducated masses get their regular rations of sweets but they will never see a bright future because the required government investment in business, job creation and training is going into corrupt pockets.

    There is a lot more to be exposed about the evils of the Taksin regime and how his scheming has polarized a previously united population. Thinks back to the Thai spirit during the boom years of 1985 through to 1995, We need a new leader comparable to the leader in those days. Throw out the useless politicians, the incompetent politicians, the corrupt politicians, the downright criminal politicians, and sack and replace the corrupt government employyes and their bosses who are siphoning off 40% of the money allocated to the provincial town halls for rural development and maintenance projects.
