    Judiciary Coup: blow to Thai democracy

     
    Thai elites and neo-fascists struck another terrible blow against democracy when the Constitutional Court staged a judicial coup and removed caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

    It was just in February that my country held election but with disastrous results: firstly the poor turnout as people were scared of the violent street protests, and secondly the unconstitutional boycott of the poll in the name of so-called "reform". This reform as advocated by the anti-government protesters was for the installation of an unelected council of hand-picked officials from the Democrat Party and corporate sector.

    As a result, 28 constituencies in Thailand was severely affected by the violence and Bangkok was torn inside-out by hired-militants within the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) ranks.

    Then the Constitutional Court ruled the polls invalid which was as strange as when judges said that PDRC members were not armed and were peaceful. This was and still is unacceptable.

    As I write this, the pro-democracy movement known as "Red Shirts" are regrouping in many provinces in the north. Their intention is simple and noble. They want justice in the name of the truth.

    The Red Shirt leader, Mr. Jatuporn Prompan, has promised to bring tens of thousands of Red Shirts into Bangkok, if only to bring the peaceful voices of the majority, the truth of democracy. I reject the judiciary coup and I condemn the Democrat politicking that has led my country into a miserable state.
