UDD co-leders led by Thida Tavonseth at Rajamangala Stadium on 30 November 2013

The following are photos from Red Shirst rally at Rajamangala Stadium to show support for the government on 30 November 2013. The rally was stage to show support for the people’s elected government before the house was later dissolved on 9 December 2013. Caretaker PM Yingluck decided to dissolve the parliament because of the ongoing protest and the escalation of violence that was led by traitor Suthep Thaugsuban and his PDRC co-leaders. Despite the house dissolution, Suthep is still unsatisfied and are now calling for appointed government and prime minister that will be selected by a hand-few of people to control the country until the next election which he is also trying to sabotage. Suthep do not want election because he knows that his beloved party (Democrat) will always loose because of their own incompetent. Suthep want violence and chaos to instigate a military coup in order to get back or to hang on to whatever power he has left. This is unacceptable by any means. The Red Shirts will continue fight against any types of coup d’état and will not let Suthep and his goons stop the people’s right to vote.
