Ultimate objectives of PAD

       a. PAD wants to get rid of corruptions. Thaksin, the billionaire civilian dictator, has left Thailand with extensive high level of corruptions and proxy politicians. Having cheated the country while in power, Thaksin hid his corrupt billion of dollars worth of assets overseas. When ousted, Thaksin is subjected to numerous convictions but cowardly fled jail overseas and pull strings on politicians to sabotage his homeland.

       b. PAD protects the Monarchy. Thaksin wants to launder himself through amending the laws with his proxy politicians, while trying to abolish the Monoarchy and make himself a President, that is to cause turmoils and change Thailand from being a "Kingdom" to a "Republic" in stead.

       c. As a permanent cure for Thailand, PAD wants to get real democracy for Thailand. At present it is a fake democracy with bad on-sale politicians.

       d. To achieve all above a, b, c we have to get rid of Thaksin and his proxy politicians and punish them according to the laws.

    Dear Prime Minister Vejjajiva

    I am writing on behalf of the Bhutan Transport Workers' Union,(BTWU) which represents 1025 union members in the transport industry in side the country and in Exile, to express my very serious concern about the summons recently issued by Thai police against trade union leaders and PAD supporters. It appears the charges are made in relation to the non-violent airport occupations and closures that occurred last year.

    I understand these charges include invasion and destruction of property, inciting unrest and additionally of terrorism, a charge that carries the death penalty. Such charges are grossly exaggerated. According to reliable reports, no physical damage was caused by the airport occupations and the only violence was the throwing of a grenade, not by PAD supporters, but by supporters of Thaksin Shinawatra.

    From the information I have received, police have acted against a number of trade union leaders and 30 leading members of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) on these charges. Many of the union leaders summonsed are from ITF affiliated-organisations. They are Bro. Somsak Kosaisook (former president and present advisor of the State Railway Workers Union of Thailand), Bro. Sawit Kaewwarn (President of the State Railway Workers Union of Thailand) Sis. Chamsri Sukchotirat (President of Thai Airways International Union) and Bro. Sirichai Mai-ngam (President of the Electricity Generating Authority State Enterprise Workers' Union).

    The BTWU fully supports the rights of its members to engage in legitimate and peaceful protest action and would strongly urge you to intervene to quash these shocking allegations and withdraw the charges made.

    I am sure that you agree with me, Prime Minister Vejjajiva, not only that these charges are disproportionate in nature, but also that a priority of any government must be to foster positive industrial relations.

    I would be very grateful to hear your comments on the matter

    Yours sincerely

    P.S. Dahal
    President BTWU

    Brothers and Sister,

    We the Philippine Railway Workers Union (BKM-PNR) and the Philippine Transport Workers Unions (PMT), express our solidarity and support to all of you who at present is being summoned by the Thai Police to answer charges of committing International Terrorism. Democracy is the essence of governance, we do not believe that fighting a corrupt government such as you did is a terroristic act. What you did is to protect the interest of the Thai people, for who will protect you from the evils of bad govenance, of corrupt politicians and of evil government, only you can do it for we filipinos cannot go there in Thailand to protect you from an evil government, we can only support but you will do the action.

    Therefore, our organizations condemns this charges thrown against all of you by the Thai police, this is harrassment in the highest degree and must not be allowed to prosper. We encourage you to fight it with determination and vigilance as what you did in ousting a corrupt Prime Minister and his minions in government. Remember, what you did is moral and the right thing to do, you have to protect your country and your people from pseudo leaders who only uses their position to enrich themselves and their families and let the whole country suffer.

    Whatever is needed please inform us so we can move accordingly. We are sending letters to your Prime Minister through email and also to your embassy here in Manila.

    Long live solidarity off labor! long live solidarity of peoples!

    Sincerely Yours,

    BKM-PNR and PM

    H.E. Kulkumut Singhara Na Ayudhaya
    Ambassador to the Philippines
    Royal Thai Embassy

    H.E. Kulkumut Singhara Na Ayudhaya,

    I am the ITF Inspector of the Associated Marine Officers and Seamen's Union of the Philippines (AMOSUP), an affiliate of the International Transport Workers' Federation, which represents over five million union members in the transport industry worldwide. We are very concerned about the summons issued by the Thai police against trade union leaders & PAD supporters. Charges being made appear to be in connection to the non-violent protests that resulted in the occupation and closure of the airport last year.

    According to reliable reports, no physical damage was caused by the airport occupation yet, charges that include invasion & destruction of property, inciting unrest & most concerning terrorism which carries a death penalty, have been leveled against them. We believe that theses charges are bloated & exaggerated. The grenade throwing incident and only violent incident was not carried out by PAD supporters, but by supporters of Thaksin Shinawatra.

    From the information we have received, police have acted against a number of trade union leaders and 30 leading members of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) on these charges. Many of the union leaders summonsed are from ITF affiliated-organisations. They are Bro. Somsak Kosaisook (former president and present advisor of the State Railway Workers Union of Thailand), Bro Sawit Kaewwarn (President of the State Railway Workers Union of Thailand) Sis. Chamsri Sukchotirat (President of Thai Airways International Union) and Bro. Sirichai Mai-ngam (President of the Electricity Generating Authority State Enterprise Workers' Union).

    The ITF fully supports the rights of its members to engage in legitimate and peaceful protest action and would urgently request you to make representations with your Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to quash these shocking allegations and withdraw the charges made.

    I hope that you will agree with me, Ambassador Singhara Na Ayudhaya, not only that these charges are disproportionate in nature, but also that a priority of any government must be to foster positive industrial relations.

    I would be very grateful to hear your comments on the matter.

    Yours sincerely,
