Red shirt leader Weng Tojirakarn urged supporters around the country on Saturday (June 16) to vigorously confront rallies called by the Democrat Party to oppose the national reconciliation bill. Mr Weng, a Pheu Thai party-list MP, said the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) will organise rallies at the same time as those called by the Democrats and that red shirts across the country should flock to them, adding that it was time to drive the Democrats out of politics. He was speaking to about 1,000 red shirt supporters at a rally at Rama IX Park in Min Buri district, where the Democrats had organised a rally on Friday (June 15). Photos by Apichit Jinakul.
