Rally in Bangkok Again

Thousands of Thailand's "Red Shirts" gathered in Bangkok Sunday to mark seven months since a deadly military crackdown on their anti-government protest.

Wearing their signature colour, the demonstrators chanted "There were dead people here!" and released red balloons in the latest in a series of rallies in the Thai capital to commemorate those killed during unrest in April and May.

The Reds' two-month rally, which attracted 100,000 people at its peak in support of their demands for snap elections, was brought to a bloody end on May 19 with an army assault on the group's base.

The demonstration saw street battles between protesters and troops in violence that left more than 90 people dead and nearly 1,900 injured.

Around 10,000 people attended Sunday's rally, according to an AFP reporter at the scene.

Jatuporn Prompan, one of the few senior Reds not detained by authorities, called for the release of 19 leaders currently being held on terrorism charges, awaiting possible trial.

Romans 10:9-10
"If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
