Red Shirts holding mass rally today

BANGKOK, Nov 19 -- The leaders of the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) have called a mass rally at at Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok today and tomorrow to show the force of the people.
UDD leaders including Chairwoman Thida Thavornseth, Jatuporn Prompan, Weng Tojirakarn held an urgent press conference on Monday on the planned gathering.
Spokesman Woravut Wichaidit said the UDD gathering is designed to inform Red Shirt supporters about the Constitution amendment being considered in Parliament.
Mr Woravut said that the rally starts at noon today and will continue overnight until the Constitution Court gives its scheduled verdict tomorrow on the Constitution amendment bill related to election of Senators.
He said the rally has no scheduled ending, so the gathering would be prolonged and the UDD leaders will inform the Red Shirt supporters later on the planned ending date.
Mrs Thida said the gathering was aimed to show the force of people who support democracy. She asserted that the rally would be carried out peacefully as the UDD does not want any confrontation with other groups.
Mr Jatuporn said that the rally would not pressure the Constitution Court judges and there would be no confrontation. The date has set for Tuesday and Wednesday but would make decision again on the schedule. He hinted that the rally may not end in two days. (MCOT online news)
