16. to attack or assault (persons, places, or things): to storm a fortress.
Yes, there will be reds from outside of Bangkok, but many of them will come from within 1-2 hours drive of Bangkok as there are many reds in these provinces. Also, when on November 11, the Bangkok Post reported on Democrat protesters coming from the South, it didn’t use such pejorative term:
Meanwhile, people from the South, a Democrat stronghold, have been mobilising to join the Ratchadamnoen protests today. In Surat Thani, at least 3,200 people from 19 districts left the provinces yesterday for Bangkok.
