BANGKOK – THAILAND’S ‘red shirt’ movement will hold a week-long protest in Bangkok from mid-February, one of its leader said on Thursday, taking aim at unelected elites it says have long dominated the country’s political landscape.

Although the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) would continue targeting advisers to the country’s revered monarchy, it remained loyal to the king and was not pursuing a republican agenda, its main leader Veera Musikapong said.

Thousands of ‘red shirts’, supporters of exiled former premier Thaksin Shinawatra, have already begun protests ahead of the mass rally next month near the seat of government in the historic heart of Bangkok.
