BANGKOK, April 12 (TNA) – Thailand’s anti-government ‘Red Shirt’ protesters on Monday paraded empty coffins with photos of 14 protesters killed during Saturday’s clashes between government troops and protesters which left 21 persons dead, including five soldiers and more than 800 injured.

The motorised red-clad procession of cars, pickups, taxis and motorcycles pushed off from the iconic Democracy Monument on Ratchadamnoen Avenue and continued to key streets through the capital.

Police have been deployed to key locations to facilitate the Red Shirt procession and motorists.

Jatuporn Prompan, key leader of the ‘Red Shirt’ United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) said the group has shut the door for negotiations with the government, even though the coalition parties resolved to reduce the timeframe to dissolve the House to six months from nine months as earlier proposed by the government.
