Thida Thavornseth Discusses the Recent Rally Held on 5-7 of April

We are happy with the recent rally on 5-7 of April at Aksa Road (at Puttamonton intersection). We were very satisfied with the level of success achieved regarding the quantitative and qualitative goals of citizens who gathered en mass on those three days. However, we still need to improve more in terms of coordination and in providing all the necessary types of facilities for the large number of people on-hand.

In terms of facilitating safety, there are volunteer guards from many provinces that come to join the many thousands of people. This is something that will help provide more care for safety and will greatly improve various other services for the people attending the rallies. All these things we must improve, including our role as core regional leaders and our allied roles on stage at rallies. We also need to improve the quality of shows and on-stage speeches. All of these improvements won’t be easy because the organizational attributes, traditional practices, historical struggles of our group, along with the large number of leaders and differing ideologies among members within the UDD. Some have created various different new organizations. Therefore, UDD must use the collective type of leadership as a way to drive the rallies.

Declaration against Separation of State by the UDD-Red in the Land

UDD-Logo
Bangkok, March 5,2014.

According to the news that Red Shirts in the North and the North East wanted to secede from the country and that the Third Army had filed a complaint against Mr. Pechrawat and the PPS Lanna group, the Third Army unilaterally interpreted that SPP meant “Socialist People’s Republic”. The Third Army drew their own conclusions that the group wanted to change the regime in Thailand from a democratic system under the Constitutional Monarchy to one of a Socialist Republic.

This is contrary to reality. In fact, PPS actually means “Assembly for the Defense of Democracy in Lanna” which refers to the group of people who are defending a Democratic System in the North (Lanna). This group also supports the democratic system with the election of Members of Parliament. The fact is that the PDRC purposely slandered the UDD and the Red Shirts.
