Last weekend, up to a 1,000 demonstrators marched in central Bangkok calling on the army to withdraw support to the ruling military Junta. Gen. Prawit Wongsuwan, who is also Deputy Junta leader, immediately responded that the military is united in its support for the Junta. The march was organised by a new group called the “Democracy Restoration Group” and is a sign that public opposition to the military Junta is increasing. On the following day on Monday, prosecutors charged nine Red Shirt leaders with insurrection for leading an anti-government protest in April 2009.
