Bangkok: “red shirts” reject overtures by Thai PM
One day after they declared “class war” against the elites, the red shirts showed no sign that they would back off from their threat against the leaders and military who ousted former Prime Minister Thaksin in 2006 and brought to power current Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva.
Anti-government leaders have reiterated their position, saying that demonstrations would end only with new elections. Dialogue will be possible if the government resigns and parliament is dissolved.
Following their unusual form of peaceful protest adopted in the last few days when donated blood was poured at the entrance of the prime minister’s residence and the cabinet office, the “red shirts” plan a fresh round of citywide protests for tomorrow.
