THOUSANDS of Thai "Yellow Shirt" protesters rallied in Bangkok to denounce terrorism charges levied against members of their group who mounted a crippling airport blockade last year.
Foreign Minister Kasit Piromya is among the 36 supporters of the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) who face the charge, which carries the death penalty, after the group seized Bangkok airports for nine days in late 2008.
"We had only hand-clappers - how could we seize aircraft at Suvarnabhumi? Our demonstration is not an act of terrorism," Mr Suwat added after submitting a written appeal against the charge.
