Wanted for crimes against The people of Thailand 60,000,000 Thai people would like this man returned to Thailand to face charges of: : 60,000,000 Thai people would like this man returned to Thailand to face charges of: Terrorism, corruption, abuse of power and murder Slide 3: If you would like to know why Thailand is burning tonight, former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra is the sole reason. He was deposed for extreme corruption and has been in exile sense he failed to show up for his sentencing of crimes against Thailand. This vindictive little man has vowed to wage a war in Thailand to recover his (stolen) frozen assets and to reclaim his former power. Slide 4: He has financially supported the ‘Red Shirts’ to create havoc in Bangkok and other parts of Thailand. Some of these ‘Red Shirt’ people had good intentions and would like more of a voice in Thai government. Some were misguided and came for finical support. Most of these people have returned back to their homes. However there is a small group of hard core supporters who refuse to leave Bangkok until it’s burned to the ground, with the full support and encouragement of this former prime minister. : With chaos raining down on Bangkok today, now the world knows what Thailand has known for these last few months and years leading up to today…….. ….that Thaksin Shinawatra is no friend to Thailand. He was last seen on May 15th in a Paris Louis Vuitton store. Slide 6: Like the plague he will bring only havoc and death. If he asks for asylum in your country… DO NOT LET HIM IN! Slide 7: He is no longer welcome in America or the U.K., yet many countries still don’t realize how dangerous this man is…. Slide 8: If he is in your country now, demand that he be extradited back to Thailand immediately. This is the blood that he has spilled today….. Slide 9: Brave solders and Police officers, and reporters have sacrificed much today… ...to protect the people of Thailand from selfish aggression an greed. Slide 20: Arson attacks around the capital and at other provinces that occurred after the surrender of some red-shirt leaders on Wednesday were planned ahead, Centre for the Resolution of Emergency Situation (CRES) spokesman Sansern Kaewkamnerd said on Thursday. Some of the red-shirt leaders have urged the protesters to burn down buildings and loot, he said. A Video clip is available that shows red-shirt leader Natthawut Saikua speaking to protesters, : A Video clip is available that shows red-shirt leader Natthawut Saikua speaking to protesters, "Burn them, brothers and sisters. I will be the only one taking responsibility”. Slide 22: …Pray that he will not come to your city… Slide 23: There is no reward for this egomaniacs return; however you will receive the undying gratitude of 60,000,000 Thai citizens. Thailand is grateful for your support and understanding. Slide 24: The New York Times Slide 25: Troops and armored military vehicles overcame grenade-wielding militants allied with antigovernment protesters in Bangkok, forcing the movement’s leaders to turn themselves in to the police. Arsonists in Bangkok set fire to almost 30 buildings, the government said, including the country’s stock exchange, a massive shopping mall, two banks, a movie theater and a television station. Two city halls were set on fire in the provincial capitals The leaders of the red shirts, who had roared into Bangkok on March 12 demanding news elections and calling for what they said was true democracy for the country, surrendered to the police on Wednesday afternoon to face charges of terrorism. Jatuporn Prompan, one of the leaders, said on a stage inside the protest zone before turning himself in, “Please listen to me!” he pleaded to the crowd. “Brothers and sisters, I will use the word ‘beg.’ I beg you. We have to end this for now.” The call was not heeded, and protesters began setting nearby buildings ablaze. On many days during the two months of protests, Mr. Jatuporn had worn a T-shirt with an image of Gandhi. But the resistance put up by some militants among the protesters was anything but nonviolent on Wednesday. The crackdown began Wednesday morning after weeks of negotiations failed to disperse protesters, many of whom are followers of Thaksin Shinawatra, the prime minister ousted in a 2006 military coup. Slide 26: Thai news outlets reported that one of the more militant protest leaders, Arisman Pongruengrong, who is also a popular singer, fled the protest zone in disguise. Mr. Arisman made headlines last month when he evaded arrest by climbing from a window as the police raided the hotel where he was staying. He was captured Wednesday evening by the police and taken to a military base outside Bangkok. One of the leaders, Nattawut Saikua, shouted: “If the prime minister wants to govern the country on the top of this wreckage, he should go ahead and kill us all. Protesters set fire to Central World, one of the largest department stores in Southeast Asia. The government has accused Mr. Thaksin, the former prime minister, of financing the protest movement. Slide 27: What would your government do about this? The Bangkok Post. This is going to be a long note, but I want my overseas friends to understand what has been happening here in Thailand. I would like to present a case against the international media’s reporting on the situation in Thailand, particularly Bangkok. : This is going to be a long note, but I want my overseas friends to understand what has been happening here in Thailand. I would like to present a case against the international media’s reporting on the situation in Thailand, particularly Bangkok. Most of you will likely be seeing only scenes of soldiers shooting or injured people being carried away on international TV channels for 30 seconds, but never get to know the background. Slide 29: The majority of us support the government in dealing with the terrorists hidden amongst the protesters. It held talks with the rally leaders and offered peace solutions to them 10 days ago. The prime minister publicly urged the protesters to disperse for fear of violence created by the terrorists. But the plan wasn’t accepted. So, it came time to block food and water supplies from entering the centre of the protest. If the demonstrators were peaceful, they wouldn’t rush out to throw rocks, firecrackers and even bombs at the soldiers’ barricades — thus causing the soldiers to defend themselves by firing rubber bullets and live rounds. The truth is, the Thai government has been too accommodating by withholding the use of force since the rally started two months ago (with the exception of the April 10 event, when the soldiers were ordered to move in without live ammunition and subsequently got slaughtered by unknown gunmen shooting from among the red shirt protesters). Slide 30: It has been very frustrating for the law abiding citizens of Bangkok — we even voiced our dissatisfaction at the government for its failure to uphold the laws. The situation was like Bangkok was being held for ransom. A lot of businesses got affected because it’s happening right in the middle of the major commercial area. Again, think what your government would do if there were a large group of protesters blocking all traffic at Orchard Road in Singapore; Times Square in New York City; Ginza in Tokyo; or Knightsbridge in London, for two months. They set up barricades to search through personal belongings of everyone travelling through the area. Also think what your government would do if those protesters invaded a nearby hospital, causing doctors and nurses to evacuate patients — some of whom were newborn babies in incubators and those in ICU—to other hospitals. And most important of all, think what would your government do if the protesters were found to have a large stockpile of M79 grenades, M16 and AK47 assault rifles. Do you think your government would be as tolerant as the Thai government has till now been? Thank You. You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
