Re: "UDD to mark third anniversary of upset", BP, March 15.
About 45,000 supporters gather at the Ratchaprasong intersection inMay last year to commemoratethe second anniversary of the 2010 red-shirt crackdown. PATTARACHAI PREECHAPANICH
The United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) plans to hold two rallies in Bangkok, on April 10 and May 19, to mark the crackdown on red shirts and, in advance, asks the affected businesses to accept their apologies. Thai business people in the area get what they deserve, a loss of well-needed business revenue. If a person threatens your home, you have every right to take whatever means necessary to expel him. Why Thai business owners continue to put up with this nonsense year after year is incredible. They haven't got the backbone to deal with this red mob by themselves or ask for help from the police. An angry mob of both business owners and consumers would soon make a dent in these rallies as the organisers would see they are gaining enemies, not supporters.
