The United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship will organise mass rallies of red shirts nationwide on Jan 29 in support of the Feb 2 election, UDD chairwoman Tida Tawornseth said on Thursday.
There were clear signs the scheduled Feb 2 polls might not take place. Therefore the red-shirts have to take to the streets to lead the country into the planned election, which is the only way out of the ongoing political crisis, she said.
Mrs Tida said there would be no confrontation between the red-shirts and supporters of the anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) during the planned mass gatherings.
