LONDON, April 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Following a speech delivered yesterday by lawyer Robert Amsterdam to a massive Red Shirt rally in Bangkok, the former Democrat Party member and anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban issued an aggressive attack quoted by local media.
"He is a bloody farang, why does he interfere in Thai politics?," Suthep said, repeatedly referring to Mr. Amsterdam as a "bastard" for suggesting that individual members of anti-democracy network should face international sanctions. "They want to convince the world to be on their side and force us to accept the opinion of international community. But what does the international community know about Thailand?"
In response to Suthep's statement, Mr. Amsterdam issued the following comment:
"It's a great disappointment that this is what passes for dialogue among the PDRC. Under Suthep's leadership, his organization has threatened and attacked voters much like a Thai Taliban. Using the language of 'reform,' the Democrat Party network of senators, judges, and bureaucrats are conspiring to deprive millions of Thai citizens of their right to vote by seeking the unlawful removal of yet another elected government."
"It's clear that Suthep is deeply concerned by the recent news that the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) is looking into alleged interference by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) in parliamentary affairs by probing of 308 senators and former members of parliament for voting for a constitutional amendment. The international community should continue to remind these anti-government Thai elites that another judicial coup shall not be tolerated."
Robert Amsterdam serves as international counsel to the United National Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) of Thailand. More information can be read at http://robertamsterdam.com/thailand.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
