Chamlong: ‘We’re professional prime-minister ousters’
On 24 Nov, at about 9.50 pm, Chamlong Srimuang vowed to the yellow shirts in front of Parliament that they would have a long big fight on 11 Dec, saying these three days are considered a dress rehearsal, ASTV-Manager reports.
Another PAD speaker Praphan Koonmee had told the crowd that the government wanted to change Section 190 of the Constitution to make it easy to approve the Thai-Cambodian Joint Boundary Committee (JBC) reports, and this would lead to the loss of Thai territory to Cambodia.
Chamlong said that the planned rally on 11 Dec would be fully organized, with a PA system, a stage, video screens and music.
‘Come what may, they don’t know who we are. To any prime minister who disgraces the country, we’re professional prime-minister ousters. Let’s see who this land belongs to. We have ousted three [prime ministers] already, haven’t we? What about a fourth? We don’t have to worry, no matter how the parliament votes tomorrow [25 Nov]. We’ll come on 11 Dec for a long fight. Never stop until we win. Don’t worry about the Emergency Decree or anything. The loss of territory is a greater cause,’ Chamlong said.
He said that the authorities could not arrest them because there were not enough jails and police to hold them. He had already been in jail when he was arrested in May 1992 and Oct 2008.
Before the rally was halted at 10 pm, Chamlong urged the PAD supporters to come out on 11 Dec, saying that the old days would be revived.
