THAILAND'S BLOODY SUNDAY IRISH CONNECTION



Thousands of people stop and listen attentively to the Irish-born Aussie ``military'' man as he reads his speeches, which are immediately translated into Thai.

“The criminality on that day was very similar to Bloody Sunday in Ireland, it was an insult to any soldier, it was an insult to any rules of engagement, it was an insult to any manly sense of honour that they tear-gassed a crowd of monks and businessmen.'' Conor Purcell

Mr Purcell says he became "radicalised'' and "very angry'' at the Thai government, after what he witnessed during the April 10 fighting, which left 25 people dead.

He says he was injured by two silicon-coated bullets while trying to shelter behind an APC secured by the reds and now has a ``dirty wound'' which cannot be stitched and has to be treated with antibiotics.

In his latest speech he asked the UN Security Council to refer the situation in Bangkok to the International Criminal Court and for the court to investigate the Centre for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation.

Mr Purcell says that when the protests are over he plans to continue his attempts to set up a charity here.

26 People Died and over a Thousand were injured as a result of the attack on the 10 April in Bangkok Thailand, according to Thai Government figures which still have to be verified. Like Bloody Sunday in Ireland the Thai attack AS in Ireland was ordered by A British born, Eton educated, military installed Prime minister, in this instance called Abhisit.
