Red Shirt protest in Bangkok..Red shirt protesters in front of a picture of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra at the UDD rally point near Phan Fa bridge..The UDD (United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship), commonly known as Red Shirts, support former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra who was overthrown after the military coup of 2006. The UDD claims that Abhisit Vejjajiva's government took power illegitimately, backed by the Thai Army and the judiciary. It calls for the Thai Parliament to be dissolved so that a general re-election can be held.
