    PAD rallies at British embassy

    PAD rallies at British embassy


    Protesters rallied outside the British Embassy Thursday morning to demand an extradition of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

    Hundreds of protesters led by the People's Alliance for Democracy started gathering outside the embassy at 9:30 am.

    A company of policemen were deployed to keep security.

    The PAD protesters block the traffic on Wireless Road from the Ploenchit Intersection to the Phetchaburi Road.

    After the rally at the embassy, the PAD protesters will march to the Emporium shopping mall to distribute VCDs and documents as part of their awareness campaigns on police's bloody crackdowns on protesters on October 7.

    PAD goes to Britain

    Hundreds of protesters blocked the road outside the British embassy in Bangkok on Thursday to demand the extradition of ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra, who lives in exile in London.

    More than 100 police officers, armed with shields, were deployed outside the embassy to ensure safety during the demonstration by the anti-government People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) supporters. There was no reported violence.

    PAD host Sarosha Pornudomsak read out the PAD's open letter to the British ambassador to Thailand. The letter detailed Mr Thaksin's recent conviction by the Supreme Court on corruption charges, and the PAD's call for the British government to extradite him back to Thailand.

    "Why doesn't England send Thaksin back to Thailand to be put in jail?" Ms Sarocha shouted to the crowd.

    "We are here to tell (UK Prime Minister) Gordon Brown that England should not keep a bad guy in the country."

    Traffic on Wireless Road was temporarily blocked as vehicles with amplifiers parked and blocked the busy street.

    The protesters, dressed in yellow shirts, carried banners in English demanding the extradition of Mr Thaksin. One read, "Wanted for crimes against the Kingdom of Thailand."

    They also attacked Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat, Mr Thaksin's brother-in-law, as a "murderer," referring to the death of a PAD protester when police attacked protesters with tear gas outside parliament. Around 400 people were injured.

    After the protest at the British embassy, the group planned to march along Ploenchit and Sukhumvit Roads to the Emporium mall to distribute books and video CDs on the Oct 7 clashes.
