BANGKOK—Merchandising is alive and well when it comes to anti-government protests in Thailand. Street vendors of red shirted supporters, or the UDD (United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship), were among the first to set up their stalls around Bangkok’s Democracy Monument where a large-scale protest started on Sunday morning.

The vendors were the earliest protesters arriving for 2011’s first large anti-government rally, which finished at the Ratchaprasong intersection—the high-end retail area was occupied by the UDD last April-May in a failed bid to force Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to dissolve Parliament and call an early election.
