The Ban Thammarat public service unit operated by Bang Saphan police station is in Ban Thammarat Moo 5, tambon Thong Mongkol. Protesting rubber and palm growers earlier seized the two-storey wooden house whilst they were blockading the Bangkok-bound lanes of Phetkasem Road in Bang Saphan Noi in November.
Yellow spray paint has now been used to emblazon the words “PDRC Office” over the sign for the unit and on concrete barriers placed in front of the building.
The PDRC, which is led by ex-Democrat Party MP Suthep Thaugsuban, has called on supporters across the country to set up provincial branches of the movement to support political reform efforts.
Around 5,000 people across Prachuap Khiri Khan have officially registered as members of the PDRC provincial branch and its leader would be elected on Sunday, said Santud Dejkerd, coordinator of a rubber and palm growers network for 16 southern border provinces.
Members have been given tasks that suit their competencies and the group has set up a rapid-response team, he said. The team can be mobilised within 24 hours and communicate within minutes through various channels, Mr Santud claimed.
