    So as strontium Dog reported the red Shirts had a rally at Rachaprasong Intersection again this afternoon.

    Quite a small turn out, but made for some good pictures so I popped along and stuck around until the speeches became to dull to handle any longer as speeches of all polictal animals do in the end whatever their colour.

    As usual always plenty of merchandise to sell

    Firstly some Suthep / aphisit sandals, 35B a pair or 3 for 100B



    and of course a T Shirt depicting everyones favourite little sister, well unless you actually have a little sister that is....



    This fellow seemed to be doing a lot of yapping and frankly wasn't very good at it, rambling on, stupid attempts at humour and a commie hat to boot....



    The main attraction as featured in SD post was the couple of people who were depicting sniper victims with the clear reminder that people had died at Rachaprasong.

    This was the 'dead' lady



    Quite a few mentions of the much loved and much missed soldier of the people. I bet he didn't like communists though....



    This man seemed to be doing most of the media liason when I was there although I don't recognise him....

    This was all taking place outside the destroyed part of Central World



    After that I moved over to the corner outside Gaysorn as there seemed to be something going on over there. As soon as I arrived these Police rolled in, quite a lot of them all wearing some nice blue pyjamas. they were unarmed and did nothing the whole time they were there.



    Their presence certainly didn't seem to deter this flag waving old boy....



    Nor this fella



    Right...bed, I'll do the rest tomorrow. Night Night....

    The general message of half the rally was 'YES TO VOTING'; ignore the PAD nonsense and use your vote....



    This was the man who had the jacket with the Seh Daeng picture on the back. His hat reads WARRIOR OF KING TAKSIN (Not to be confused with Thaksin, who of course is not a King).



    The desire to be photographed by me is always high on peoples agenda so the dead man followed me over the road.

    They were passing out stickers to busses stopped at the junction. Several people refused to accept them.



    The Police just stood and observed although the messages were being radioed to someone.



    I toddled over to the Erawan Shrine to take a few pictures, by the time I got back the speeches had started on the make shift stage they had erected. This guy was a big step up from the wally with the megaphone, spoke well, occassionally humourous, usual message.

    The clappers very visible at the important moments of each speech.





    From the bridge is a pic of the crowd in front of the stage.

    Different video showing the full sequence of the dying/planking event from start to finish with the vote going into the "ballot box".

    They rehearsed that move for some time, I wasn't actually there when they did the full performance, I was over at the Erawan Shrine.

    Okay just to finish this off....









    The last picture shows the full extent of the gathering, not very large at all, but they seemed to enjoy their day and made their points without any trouble from either side so that was good.

    Amazing pics. This is quietly tucked away from the mainstream parts of this forum so a lot of people probably won't see them. They bring back the past!

    BTW - I find the whole Dems plan to have a rally at Ratchaprasong extremely distasteful. What are they up to? Just to egg-on or incite the Reds as PTP has suggested? I can't understand why they'd do that. What's to gain otherwise?

    Looking for a map of the Rajaprasong area. Here's one with buildings labeled. I wanted to find a clear one that I could post as a pick but can't seem to find a good one. This one is clear but you have to view it at the link.
