The red shirts campaigned for their supporters to write postcards to comrades held in prisons across the country. Postcards and the names and addresses of the detainees were distributed at the rally.
Pongthep Thepkanchana, a banned Thai Rak Thai Party executive, wrote some postcards and said national reconciliation would not be realised if the true number of people who died in the crackdown on red shirts was not revealed.
A parody was performed with actors portraying Chart Thai Pattana Party chief adviser Sanan Kachorn-prasart, Anand Panyarachun and Prawase Wasi holding up wineglasses of blood. Their efforts to bring about reconciliation would not bear fruit if they could not bring the “murderers” to justice, the red shirts claimed.
