“Red Shirts” Add More Pressure To Thai Government

In Thailand, the anti-government “red-shirts” are planning to hold a new rally on Tuesday in order to pressure the government, a core leader said Monday.

The Tuesday rally is planned since the government is still attempting to disperse the “red-shirt” rally, core leader Natthawut Saikua was quoted as saying by Thai News Agency.

Natthawut said the “red-shirts” won’t be only at the main rally site Tuesday, but he did not provide any further details.

The “red-shirts” are not worried that the government will retake the rally site Rathchaprasong Intersection from the “red- shirts”, said Natthawut.

The “red-shirt” rally has been held from March 12 and they are now gathering at the Rathchaprasong Intersection in the center of capital Bangkok.

They have demanded Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to ” immediately” dissolve the lower House of parliament and hold a new general election.
