The Interior Ministry is mobilising a pro-monarchy rally to counter the mass gatherings called by the red shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship today.

The UDD will hold mass rallies nationwide to mark the fourth anniversary of the Sept 19, 2006 coup today.

At least 50,000 members of the Monarchy Defence Network from seven northeastern provinces _ Nong Khai, Kalasin, Loei, Nong Bua Lam Phu, Sakon Nakhon, Khon Kaen and Udon Thani _ are expected to turn up today at Thung Sri Muang, a public ground in central Udon Thani, to pledge allegiance to His Majesty the King.

The network was formed by the Newin Chidchob-headed faction of the coalition Bhumjaithai Party, which controls the Interior Ministry.
