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.
