Redshirts parading coffins in a symbolic protest for those killed in a bloody street fight on the 10 April 2010. The protest was organised by the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD). The UDD or The Red Shirts as they are commonly known, are supporters of the ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and believe he was forced out power illegally. Many of the demonstrators are rural people and travelled for up to three days to get to the event.
