"Suthep vows People Revolution in January
BANGKOK: -- The People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC)
secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban last night vowed to start what he
now called “People Revolution” next month to put an end to the
illegitimate regime of caretaker prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra .
He stressed the need to end the regime before the February 2 election to
prevent corrupted and bad politicians to return to Parliament and to
plunder the country again.
He said that it was predictable that the February 2 election would be
won by the government Pheu Thai party as there is no competitors except
those small parties which are nothing else but just a tiny element.
He said if the revolution came too late and election is held, it could
be exploited as an excuse by these corrupted politicians as a shield to
defend their status that they are elected by the people and come from
He said the PDRC would never tolerate the return of such wicked regime
and therefore would turn to “People Revolution” to tell the world that
the people wanted to recall the sovereign power back to their hands
under Article 3 of the Constitution from these bad politicians.
He said that the revolution of the people would now mean not just a
one-day seizure of any particular place in the capital but “It will be
to seize and shut the entire capital throughout the month”.
He told supporters to be in physical readiness for the month-long seizure and advised government officials to take side now.
If government officials chose to stay put, then they have to face the
consequence from the capital shutdown which will begin next month.
He also said from now the PDRC would intensify pressure on Ms Yingluck
by calling all supporters countrywide to blow whistle at her at any
place and any time they see her.
If she remained stubborn and did not listen to over a million voices of
the people, not only she will meet the consequences but her family as
He vowed that the revolution will surely end in January with no further extension."
