Before Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha officially opened the ceremony and presented souvenirs to the officers, she had been watching the parades of Anti-Violence Against Woman Campaign by Pattaya City which passed in front of the ceremony rostrum, Central Festival Pattaya Beach. The parades involved 10,000 persons from various organizations that were arranged into 88 parades and 13 orchestral bands. It started from Pattaya’s Montien Hotel and ended at the Pattaya Dusit Thanee Hotel. In addition the Pattaya Police had closed Pattaya Beach Road in preparation of the activity. Many Thais and foreigners watched the parades.

The project’s aim of Stop Violence Against Woman Network Campaign for Thailand was in honor of Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha for the work she had done in favor of the king’s idea. Moreover, it was beneficial in presenting knowledge about the Act for the Protection of Women and Childrens Rights from Abuse in families. It was held to promote the job of Rights Protection and Legal Aid Center under the Attorney General office’s management. It was expected that the local people would participate in generating the network to prevent women from violence according to the Attorney General office’s policy.

Working in line with the local residents and seeing their way of life, led Her Royal Highness Princess Bajrakitiyabha to the awareness of the peoples’ problems and suffering, especially concerning violence to women in both body and mind.

This led Her Royal Highness to agree to be the Ambassador of the UNIFAME project of the Say No to Violence Against Women in Thailand as well as the other projects to stop violence to women.  Throughout this year 2010, it is expected that activities totaling 100,000 in favor of the project will continue until 25th November 2010 which is International Day for Stop Violence Against Women.
