About 1,000 demonstrators in the first wave converged outside her house. They will be joined by another group, led by Seri Wongmontha, a well-known academic in the field of mass communication and marketing, which departed from Democracy Monument on Sunday morning on various kinds of vehicles, including motorcycles, six-wheel trucks and tractors. Their plan was to move to Phan Fa, Lan Luang Uraphong, Victory Monument, Din Daeng, Rama 9 and the road alongside the Ekamai-Ram Intra expressway.
People's Democracy Reform Committee (PDRC) co-leader Anchalee Paireerak, who is leading the group along with Dr Seri, said on the stage that although Ms Yingluck would not be at home, the group would still go to show symbolic opposition to her insistence on staying on as caretaker prime minister.
A large number of police have reportedly been deployed to block Soi Yothin Pattana 3 to prevent the protesters from reaching the prime minister's residence.
Many people living nearby have moved their cars far from the area, amid fears that the protest might escalate.
As of 11am, the demonstrators, armed with whistles, hand-clappers and Thai flags, led by Mr Seri and Ms Anchalee was moving past Pratunam area.
The Metropolitan Police Bureau, led by Pol Maj Gen Suthee Netkunthee, deployed about 1,000 officers at Ms Yingluck's residence in the stand-off with the protesters.
