- +

Fugitive former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra cancelled a meeting with his supporters at Thai town, north of downtown Los Angeles, USA, on Sunday evening (LA time) after about 2,000 yellow-shirts also gathered near the venue, the Post Today website reported. 

Post Today quoted a report in Siamtown US, a leading weekly Thai newspaper in LA, California, that Thaksin was scheduled to meet his followers and red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) supporters at a private dinner organised by the “Red USA” group at Thailand Plaza on Hollywood Boulevard at 6pm (8am Thai time Monday). 

He was then to address the crowd from a makeshift stage built on the plaza’s parking lot at 8pm.
