Eastern Monarchies

Red shirts not condone Jakrapob splinter group

The red shirts do not agree with the communist-leaning strategy adopted by fugitive suspect Jakrapob Penkair, red-shirt co-leader Jatuporn Prompan said on Thursday.

Jatuporn confirmed the red shirts had severed ties with the Jakrapob-led splinter group.

"We want democracy under the King as head of state, therefore our activities are limited to attack Privy Council president Prem Tinsulanonda or lower figures to prevent an escalating fight trangressing the constitutional monarchy," he said.

Protest news, 1979

National Iranian Radio and Television (NIRT) news report, 1979

News anchor Suzie Ziai on NIRT International channel covering the chaos which was taking place in Iran during the last days of the monarchy. Fascinating!
