Red-shirts Commemorate 13-Month Anniversary of Rally Crackdown

Yesterday evening the red-shirt group gathered at the Ratchaprasong Intersection to commemorate those who lost their lives during the crackdown on the group's gathering 13 months ago.

Several red-shirt group factions gathered yesterday evening at the Ratchaprasong Intersection to conduct activities to remember those in their group who were killed during the dispersal of their protest 13 months ago.

One of the activities was planking, intended to serve as a reminder of the victims who lost their lives in the dispersal and as a way to encourage Thais to go out and vote on July 3.

For those of you still new to the latest fad, planking is when a person lies flat on his or her face in a private or, many times, public places.

There were also speeches, musical performances, and poetry recitals on stage before the group finally dispersed at around 8 P.M.

The Pheu Thai Party had earlier coordinated with the red-shirt group, asking that it not hold activities on June 19, as it may dampen the party's election campaigning in the lead-up to the election.

The group compromised by limiting its activities, keeping them to a smaller scale.

Can there be a more stupid, asinine fad as planking?!! Any suggestions on a new fad to create? It has to be as "cool" as planking...that is the only criteria.

Didnt the Thai mental health department declare that Planking was a mental health problem?

Figures the Reds would employ such a demonstration of their mental state... and Thailand wants to elect these fools into office... dark days ahead if that ever happens.

Teapotting, takes on planking as new internet craze

I kid you not !!

My father was right (for once): find a job and work more than 40 hours per week and you will not even think about "Teapotting" or "Planking" : what an utter waste of time.

Most of the red-shirt supporters in jail are garbage collectors, homeless people, and the mentally ill who cannot seek legal help or find enough money for bail. The People’s Centre for Information (PCI) revealed its initial investigation on the April-May crackdowns yesterday.

It collected information about 169 red-shirt protesters who are now under detention in the provinces of Maha Sarakham, Ubon Ratchathani, Udon Thani, Khon Kaen, Mukdahan, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai over charges of taking part in illegal gatherings as well as arson or terrorism.

PCI discovered that most of the detained red shirts could not find lawyers or enough money for bail. Most of the detainees are garbage collectors, homeless people, and people with mental health problems.

Mindless sheep

The mindless sheep from what I understand started in Europe.

Many mindless things start outside of Thailand and we introduce it to the Thai people,

telling them it's the thing to do, eat or drink, mirror, mirror on the wall.
