An Appeal To UN To Help Restoring Democracy In Thailand sign now

To Honorable Secretary Ban Ki-moon
H.E. Ambassadors Of All Countries In The Free World and Heads of UN Agencies

Yours Excellencies:

Suvarnabhumi International Airport in Bangkok has now been closed by a group of terrorists from the anti-government Peoples Alliance for Democracy (PAD), which is demanding that the elected government resign. This is despite the fact that the government has the backing of the majority of the Thai population. This backing has been proven by repeated elections. The PAD wants a dictatorship to replace democracy.

International Airports are highly sensitive security areas. Thai airports are controlled by the Thai military. It is obvious that the Thai military, who staged an illegal coup in 2006, have quietly supported PADs actions. Back in early October, the PAD thugs surrounded parliament to prevent the Prime Minister from making a policy speech. When the police used tear gas to try to disperse the PAD, the police were roundly condemned by the Thai media and most middle-class intellectuals. It is no secret that the PAD terrorists are armed with guns, bombs, knives and wooden batons. They constantly break the law with impunity. Earlier Tuesday PAD thugs were filmed by Thai TV PBS, shooting at taxi drivers who were trying to defend their pro-democracy community radio station. Yesterday the PAD kicked and punched a senior policeman. The police are powerless to act.

The PAD is a royalist fascist mob which has powerful backing. Apart from the army, they are supported by the Queen, the so-called Democrat Party, the courts, the mainstream media and most university academics. What these people have in common is a total contempt for the Thai electorate who are poor. They are angry that the Thai people voted for a government that gave the poor universal health care and other benefits. They want to turn the clock back to a dictatorship which they call "the New Order".

It is clear that the PAD, the Military, the Democrat Party and the conservative establishment would rather see total chaos in Thailand than allow democracy to function. Instead of addressing the airport-seizure stand off, they hope the Thai kangaroo courts will move fast to dissolve the ruling party on November 2, and that an authoritarian "national government" can be set up.

The silence majority of Thailand strongly supports the pro-democracy Red Shirts. We hope our friends abroad will support all our efforts to defend Thai democracy. We urge UN and all governments who adore true democracy to continue support democracy and social justice in Thailand. We urge the International Circles to act fast before it is too late. There has been a lesson to learn from the Myanmar situation which was perhaps the fruit of the delay of prompt actions by the International Community. The support of your Excellencies shall be highly appreciated.

Yours Excellency, we remain
