People’s Alliance for Democracy holds Chiang Mai seminar

Members of the anti-Thaksin political party People’s Alliance for Democracy held a seminar on “Thai politics viewed through the present situation” at the Rattanakosin Hotel in Chiang Mai on June 29. Asst. Prof. Choemsak Pintong, (former Senator), Dr Surat Horachai, (lecturer in International Relations at the Faculty of Political Science, Chulalongkorn University), and Swing Tanud, (former member of the 2007 Constitution Drafting Committee), presided over an audience composed mainly of older businessmen and academics.
Pamphlets were handed out describing the history of the Thaksin regime, and detailing the former PM’s administration of the country which, the PAD considers, has destroyed Thailand’s democracy. CDs and shirts were also on sale, containing the words ‘Love Thailand, Fight the Thaksin Regime’. Bands of yellow cloth were distributed at the entrance, to be tied around the head or wrist.
