Network formed against violence, coup

Sixty prominent academics, intellectuals and activists across the political divide came together for the first time Friday to form network and say they are against violence or military coup and support election as well as reform.

The press conference which was held Friday at Thammasat University came just less than three days before the planned shutdown of Bangkok by the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) on Monday and amidst rife speculation about an impending military putsch.

The newly-formed group, calling itself 'Network of Two Yes and Two No' said they're fearful that the risk of widespread violence is very real and Thais on both side of the divide must learn to co-exist peacefully.
