What colour clothing to avoid wearing during this political hot period?

Postby Rodney, ร็อดนีย์ » Tue May 05, 2009 5:52 am

i'll be in Bangkok in a few hours.

I understand that there are some political issues whereby supporters wear different colour clothing to show support.

what colour clothing should i avoid wearing to avoid getting into trouble?

Rodney,

Red and yellow have been the "hot" colors lately. The "yellows" shut down the airport late last year and the "reds" shut down parts of BKK a few weeks ago.

Watch out for the "Blues", they may be next. :) They seem to represent the middle ground wanting, everyone to calm down.

What is the essence of our democracy? One way to tell our thoughts and feelings is through our t-shirt. Print something and there you go about your feelings. But some politicians overused this, they used some people to strike against their opponent in politics. Some people use yellow for democracy. But democracy sometimes overused. As Agnes Repplier says," Democracy forever teases us with the contrast between its ideals and its realities, between its heroic possibilities and its sorry achievements."

As, I assume, a Farang you really needn't worry about it unless you are actually planning to go to a rally or other trouble spot. The main protagonists wear red (pro-Thaksin) and Yellow (anti-Thaksin). If you add yellow and red together, you get orange, so you could go and act like Mr Cool here at a Red Shirt rally:

I think I detect a reduction in the number of people wearing yellow on Mondays to honour the King, but that may be due to his jubilee and 80th birthday celebrations passing further into the past. I remember a new reporter for the BBC who arrived in Bangkok just after the coup and made a lot of the fact that many people of the streets were wearing yellow as a protest against the coup - of course she arrived on a Monday and it was just business as usual back then as far as shirt choice was concerned - newbie mistake. Red doesn't have any particular royal connotation (the other popular colours are blue for the Queen on Friday especially and pink for the King's health during a previous illness).

Seriously, don't sweat it, it's a Thai thing :D
