I recently returned to Thailand after spending ten nights in Bangkok. While in Bangkok, I found out that I did not know much about Thai politics.

The ability to be in a country while something unexpected is occurring tends focus one’s attention not only during the trip but also afterwards. When I was present at an important event, I tend to feel more invested in a country. Because of this, my knowledge about Thai politics began to change after my visit. The Red Shirts are protesting against the government in Bangkok, which I follow from home.

In January 2010, a month-long journey to India was on my mind. In January 2010, I also convinced a Sydney friend who was living nearby to meet me at Bangkok after my India trips. We agreed to meet in Bangkok during the second week. Our plans included staying four nights in Bangkok before moving down to a resort south of Pattaya. Our last two nights would be spent here before we returned to Bangkok. We were not expecting our plans to follow the same path as they did due to the political unrest of Bangkok.

My friend, who was familiar with the Australian media, knew that the Thai government had anticipated clashes and protests with a group called “The Red Shirts” at the time she met me in Bangkok. Being from London I don’t recall having read or heard anything about Thailand’s politics that would have alerted my to possible future trouble.

Three weeks before the meeting, my friend wrote me an anxious email. She saw the growing concern of the Thai government regarding the anti-government demonstrations. I ignored her concerns again. I only realized the truth when I was in Bangkok.

My friend arrived from Sydney hours later. We stayed at The Davis Hotel in Bangkok’s eastern area for four nights.

I didn’t hear anything about any protests at the international Airport from either the taxi driver or the hotel staff when my arrival. The two of us began sightseeing Bangkok on Wednesday, and continued by taking the skytrain and river boat to all of our destinations. We learned late on Thursday that the Red Shirts hoped that they would have a million demonstrators in time for their weekend protests.

Because of their inexperience, our hotel staff suggested we stay at the hotel on Friday. We followed their advice to stay around the hotel on Friday to get to the beach the next day.

Reports indicate that people are already gathering in Bangkok for weekend protests. However, it was reported that protestors arrived far less than expected.

The next day we took off for Jomtien Beach

which is just south from Pattaya Beach. Again, we saw no signs that there were any problems. As we left Pattaya and traveled down the motorway, there weren’t any police-blocks or obstructions. We started to hear more about the Red Shirts’ demonstrations, their size and the rhetoric they use.

According to reports, around 100,000 Red Shirts showed up in Bangkok on Sunday. Instead of a million protestors. The government blocked all roads to Bangkok from the northern countryside, which led to low numbers.

It is possible that you are wondering now, “What are these red shirts in Thailand?” Who are the Red Shirts in Thailand? How are they different from Yellow Shirts?” Let me explain:

The Red-shirts are supported in general by both the urban poor as well as the rural populace. Red Shirts may also be known as the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship’. They supported Thaksin Sunawatra, former prime minster of Thailand, between 2001 and 2006. They believed he was caring about them and listened.

Despite his wealth of billions, PM Thaksin still is a hero among the poor Thais. It is no surprise that the Red Shirts backed Samak Wongsawat and Somchai Sundaravej as the next prime ministers. Pro-democray activists also participate in the current demonstrations. These activists disagree with PM Thaksin’s 2006 military coup.

Red Shirts believe the current government of Prime Minister Abhisit Vjajiva is illegitimate. This is because it came into power after disputed court orders dissolving two pro Thaksin governments. They call for the dissolution of the current parliament and new elections.

The Yellow Shirts mainly consist of urban and middle class elites who support PM Abhisit’s current government. The ‘People’s Alliance for Democracy’ in Thailand is one of the active political groups. They sometimes are joined by an anti Red Shirts group, which attracts middle-class family members, office workers, and some low-wage employees. There have been previous Yellow Shirts demonstrations that saw more violence and confrontation.

Protests against Thaksin Shinawatra the former prime minister in Thailand were launched by the Yellow Shirts in 2006. They were protesting corruption. In 2001, Thaksin became Thailand’s prime Minister. Prior to being elected prime minister of Thailand, Mr. Thaksin spent billions of money in telecom ventures. Red Shirts backed PM Thaksin.

PM Thaksin, who was facing various corruption charges, was removed from power in September 2006. After the coup, PM Thaksin fled to Britain, where he remained until Oct 2008. New elections were held in Thailand December 2007 after more than a decade of military control.

Samak Sundaravej – an ally in Mr. Thaksin’s – was sworn to office as the prime minister for February 2008. This government was also supported the Red Shirts.

Protests led by the antigovernment Yellow Shirts

culminated into a three-month occupation that included certain government buildings. This occupation continued with the November occupations of Bangkok airports.

September 2008: Prime Minister Samak was resigned under a Constitutional Court decision due to conflict of interest. He had accepted payments for appearing on a Thai cooking series. Somchai Wongsawat became the new prime-minister after PM Samak was dismissed. This was his brother-inlaw, who was prime minister of Thailand from 2006 to 2006.

In October 2008, the Supreme Court of Thailand declared Mr. Thaksin guilty of absentia. He was sentenced two years for corrupt land transactions. Mr. Thaksin emigrated to Hong Kong after his conviction. Surprisingly however, Mr. Thaksin also had ownership of the Manchester City Football Club for slightly over a calendar year. He purchased it in the middle of 2007, during his short stay in Britain.

On 25th November 2008, the yellow shirts of anti-government invaded Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Then they occupied the Don Murng Airport further down the road.

In order to force PM Somchai into resignation, the Yellow Shirts occupied Somchai’s place to prevent him from returning home from the APEC Summit. The Yellow Shirts refused entry to airports unless a change was made in government.

The Yellow Shirts’ demands for a Thai Constitutional Court meeting on December 2, 2008 were fulfilled by finding the country’s government guilty, in part, of electoral fraud. The court ruled PM Somchai was out of politics and demanded his party be dissolved.

In April 2009 the Red Shirts staged a small rebellion to overthrow PM Abhisit’s government. Following the Red Shirts’ attempted invasion of the Asean summit by the Red Shirts, there were brief riots.

February 2010 Thailand’s Supreme Court declared that US$1.4Billion of Mr. Thaksins Thailand-based assets (more then half of which are frozen) was to be seized. It came after Mr. Thaksin was unanimously found guilty on five counts each of corruption.

Red Shirts began assembling on Wednesday 12 March 2010 to protest in Bangkok the weekend of 13 and 14. The leaders claimed that they would be staying in Bangkok five days to pressure the government to hold new elections. According to reports Mr. Thaksin is behind these protests. He was also responsible for paying the Red Shirts participant fees.

22 April 2010, Red Shirts remained encamped in the capital. Five M-79 grenades were shot near their encampment. At least 86 people sustained injuries and one was fatally wounded.

28 April 2010, one Thai soldier was killed during a clash north Bangkok between Red Shirts forces and government troops. Two days earlier PM Abhisit claimed that his government was in trouble.

If there is no solution by that date, the Yellow Shirts will make demands of PM Abhisit.

While we were at Jomtien Beach we gathered all the news about the Bangkok protests from television reports, newspapers and the resort’s staff. Abhisitvejiva the current prime minister rejected any demand to dissolve his government.

The Red Shirts stepped it up a few more days after our arrival. Nattawut Seikua, a leader from the Red Shirts urged a blood famine against the government, the aristocrats as well as the powerful. Protestors were encouraged by the Red Shirts to drop blood on various government buildings.

Massive containers of collected human blood were thrown on various government sites, including the residence to the prime minister, Tuesday 16/03/

Reports also indicated that the government made an enormous effort to prevent any of the blood, which might have been contaminated by it, reaching the Bangkok watertable. This was an even more disturbing and macabre demonstration after hearing about the blood curse.

Our plans to spend our last night in Bangkok went sour. We started to worry that the hotel in Bangkok’s financial area would be involved in the protests. We cancelled our booking at that hotel and booked another at the Davis Hotel.

The owners of the resort suggested to us that we cancel our reservation in the Davis hotel. We had heard about the curse the day before. We then selected a third, more convenient hotel in the financial district. It was also close to the river.

We drove back towards Bangkok for the last two days of our stay in Bangkok. We didn’t notice any demonstrations. It was a shame that we had to change hotels so often. As we reached Bangkok’s streets, it seemed like there were other cars.

The normal operation of transportation, including the skytrains and buses, was evident. We were not affected by any protests. Although we were unable to go on with our normal sightseeing, we did take the opportunity to explore the surrounding area. Only when we arrived at the Suvarnabhumi International Airport (to leave), did we see military jeeps close off many lanes leading up to it.

Talking to Thais at restaurants, shops and taxis in Bangkok revealed that they were all supportive of the Red Shirt demonstrations.

This was unexpected for me since I had assumed that they would be supportive after Thaksin was found guilty of many corruption-related charges. There seemed to be multiple reasons for this support.

First, many Thais claimed that their support of the Red Shirts’ protest was due in part to the lack aggression and violence by its members. Red Shirts were viewed by many as peaceful and passive.

This was a stark contrast to protests by Yellow Shirts just one and two year ago when demonstrations were violent and aggressive.

The Red Shirts’ support was also based on the fact that those at lower levels of society, including those who work in shops and taxi drivers, aren’t represented by Bangkok’s elite (which included aristocrats).

A person working in education stated that Thai politics was at a dangerous crossroads since the 2006 military coup. Someone in education claimed that the coup silenced the voices from large parts of Thai society.

To silence them, different laws were applied to stop free speech and allow for candid debate. There are indications of military personnel that are sympathetic to Red Shirts’ cause. The Red Shirts, and the Yellow Shirts, are a symbol of class struggle.

Personally, I felt sorry to the Thai people for their warm welcome and hospitality towards tourists. They have also become more wary since my 13-year-old visit to Bangkok.

This distancing I believed was because they were disillusioned about tourists but now I think that they were curious what was going on with the government.

They are hardworking and compassionate people who want to have their voices heard. Their most recent governments were neither stable nor truthful. The future will determine whether PM Abhisit’s government continues to follow the footsteps of its predecessors or follows a straighter path.
