Unite Power Of The People to Counter The Barbaric Illegitimate State
Following the resolution of the assembly of the national network of People's Alliance For Democracy on Sunday April 18, 2010 at Rangsit University, which gives the government a chance within 7 days, to deal with the illegal rally and the hidden terrorists at the rally site, according to PAD's announcement of 8/2010, the time has passed.
However, the government and the security authorities have not proceeded as various sectors and PAD called for. This results in more deepening and widening of the crises, severe losses to the worrying economy and society. The violence patterns defying the law and the social convention have become a norm spreading to the rural provinces, such as ganging up armed mercenaries, setting up checkpoints to seize military and police transports, and setting blockades of people in opposition to the red movements.
The crises in Thailand have spreaded fast and furious to the extent that the country has entered a disaster. Meanwhile, the government and the security authorities have not acquired any means to deter and cease the serious crises. They still let the illicit rallies, comprising of terrorism, sabotage, and threats to the society and the people, going on like serial hijacking of the public.
The government who has the obligation to protect the poeple, does not seriously carry out the duties. Moreover, the government still expresses floppiness in law enforcement so bad that officers become confused, or ignorantly become passive, or betray the government and become informant spies for the terrorists. Thus, there is a vaccuum of power.
Due to such anarchy, or political chaos, PAD sees the necessity to exercise our rights according to article 70 of the Constitution, as citizens who have to defend the nation, the religion and the King as well as the constitutional monarchy, by following measures:
1. PAD sees the current situation as that the red-shirts have already taken away the state power in several areas, for example, the seizures of military trucks and illicit checkpoints in Konkhaen province, trespassing and arson at Rajthanee Asoke, Ubolrajthanee province, illicit checkpoints on Paholyothin road, and many other sabotages. The red-shirts have extablished an outlaw state superceding that of the existing state but the government still lets the public face the barbaric outlaw state on their own.
2.PAD calls for the government to announce the stance, policies and definite and concrete frameworks for law enforcement upon the illegitimate rallies and terrorists. In particular, the Prime Minister, as the leader of the country, must demonstrate clear measures and directions to fix these national crises. The Prime Minister has realized that the crises involve the nationl security which requires military measures and not with regular political solutions alone. Even the army chief has accepted this fact in the television program "Trust Thailand", that he is ready to follow all of the government's policies. However, until now the government has not clearly declared measures how to deal with the terrorists. It only confuses the public and worsens the situation so badly that even the Prime Minister has already designated the authority to Gen.Anupong Paojinda, the army chief, to take full responsibility of the Center for Resolution of Emergency Situation (CRES) and the control of the situations, still, it is unclear that who has the highest authority in commanding and managing the current serious emergency situations.
3. PAD calls for the government to consider announcing state of serious emergency in the provinces which are at risk of establishment of outlaw states superimposing upon the legitimate state. In order that the national rescuing measures would be in-time and effective, the government and the army must urgently apply military measures under martial laws in the crucial areas, to stop the illegal rallies and swiftly deal with the terrorists.
4. The directions of PAD's movements, having been waiting for seven days, as designated by the assembly, are the 5 measures, in order, as follows.
4.1 PAD requests our brothers and sisters PAD all over the country to support and join the voluntary groups to defend the country and unite into groups at all levels either at the village, district, provincial and regional levels to keep watching and defending your own communities, detering any unlawful activities which may post dangers to the throne and the national security.
4.2 PAD requests our brothers and sisters PAD in every province to send groups of representatives to submit a written request to every army barrack in every province in order to stimulate the army and the soldiers to come out to perform their soldership duties against the terrorist movements and illegal rallies to rapidly return peace to Thai society. A nationwide simultaneous submission of the written requests to provincial army barracks for the definite policies and directions against the terrorist movements is set at 10:00 on Thursday April 29, 2010. For the central region, the core leaders will submit the written request at the Royal Guard, Infantry Division Number 11 barrack.
4.3 In order that our brothers and sisters all over the country will perceive the facts and causes of these crises, PAD will make publications and CDs to expose the subversive anti-royalist movements, the plots to take over the state to abolish the constitutional monarchy, and the background of the terrorist movements.
4.4 PAD requests our brothers and sisters PAD all over the country not to engage in any businesses with the supporters of the illegal rallies and the terrorism, by not trading with and by opposing any businesses of the network of red-shirts which PAD will announce the detail later.
4.5 PAD requests members in every province wherever ready, to hold a calm and peaceful rally as well as a campaign to propagate actual facts to the public in every province.
Constantly, PAD will be evaluating the situation and our movement measures. If the situation is not improved, we will gradually raise the intensity of our movements which will be continually brainstormed and evaluated by our nationwide brothers and sisters PAD, until peace resumes.
