PAD mobilizes to protect the monarchy

15 02 2009

In recent days PPT has posted reports on a climate of fear that has accompanied political developments over the past 2-3 weeks. This has been fanned by government ministers but also by right-wing and nationalist commentators, including Kamnoon Sidhisamarn, an appointed senator and  senior columnist for ASTVManager.

Now Sondhi Limthongkul, owner of the Manager and leader ultra-nationalist and royalist People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD), is calling on his PAD supporters – those who occupied Bangkok’s airports late last year – to mobilize in Thaksin’s political strongholds in the North and Northeast. He claims that “PAD gathering in the provinces will boost the people’s morale and strengthen their love for the nation and the monarchy.”
