Pattaya, 12 March, 2010, [Pattaya Daily News]: Early this afternoon, Mrs. Jureeporn  Sindhuprai, President of the People Love Democracy Association of Pattaya led a group of over 300 Red Shirts to first pray and give homage to the shrine of King Taksin, behind Rungland Village, South Pattaya and secondly to assemble in front of  Pattaya City Hall, before moving off on a ‘rebel rousing’ tour of the city.

The ‘rebel rousing’ took the form of broadcasting stirring rhetoric from a bus  with the intent of recruiting local people to join their group going to Bangkok. Their speech attacked the Prime Minister and the President of the Privy Council. Over 50 Pattaya Police and police volunteers provided security at different points in Pattaya.

Mrs. Jureeporn  Sindhuprai announced that, so far, between 1,000 to 1,500 local people will be going to Bangkok tomorrow. Most will be going by car and motorbike, with at least 100 of them going via the Chonburi By-pass to join the main Eastern Seaboard group on the Bangna–Trad Road.  The demonstrators took 80 temporary toilets with them.
