Military junta bans redshirt to hold memorial activities on April 10

The redshirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) won’t be allowed to hold memorial activities on April 10 to remember those who were killed in the military crackdown of anti-government protesters on April 10, 2010.

This was made clear to the redshirts by deputy prime minister in charge of national security, Gen Prawit Wongsuwan today.

He said he would not allow UDD to hold memorial activities which it was untimely as the country is still in the mourning period.

Besides Holding such activities could again cause a rift in the country, he said.

He cited last year’s Loy Krathong festival as an example that was allowed to be held only at appropriate level.
