UDD leader pop postcard idea to support charter change


(21/12/55) A leader of the United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) has kicked off a new political campaign, urging the public to send postcards with messages supporting the constitutional amendment process and Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

Speaking at a press conference today about the new scheme under the name “3-baht democracy”, UDD leader Arisman Pongreungrong (อริสมันต์ พงศ์เรืองรอง) said number 3 represents the three main institutions comprising the nation, religion and monarchy as well as the three main sovereign powers, namely the executive, legislative and judiciary.

Thailand Post now charges three baht to send a letter and two baht to send a postcard.

Mr Arisman said writing letters and postcards can be a good approach to express political opinions and support the prime minister instead of taking to streets and troubling the public. He said he personally believes that charter amendment can turn Thailand to be truly democratic.

According to the singer-turned-activist, the first batch of postcards with a text reading “Support the Charter Amendment for a True Democracy by the Government of the People for the People” will be distributed tomorrow to UDD supporters during a UDD gathering at Bonanza Resort in the northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima (นครราชสีมา). They will be collected and forwarded to the Prime Minister later
