Protests at two spots Thursday

The anti-government protesters will Thursday rally at the home of caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and the Thailand-Japan sports complex at Din Daeng, venue for the drawing of ballots for party positions on the voting papers, core protest leader Sathit Wongnongtoey said on Wednesday.

The People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) demonstrators will march to Ms Yingluck’s residence in Soi Yothin Pattana 3 in Bangkok to pressure her to resign from her role as caretaker prime minister, Mr Sathit said. The demonstrators will meet at the Ratchadamnoen rally site but the time for the group to start marching to the premier’s home has not been fixed, he added. 

Another group of protesters from the Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand (NSPRT) will gather at Government House at 6am tomorrow. They will later move to rally at the Thailand-Japan sports complex, where the Election Commission will carry out the draw for 34 political parties at 9am. 

The EC on Wednesday resolved to use the stadium as the venue for election candidacy registration until Friday. 

Mr Sathit, an ex-Democrat MP, also said the PDRC will organise a countdown event to celebrate New Year but will give further details later.

There demands are endless and ousting the Primw minister is not just enough for them. What they government need to do is to enforce the law before people will reach the civil war. The Prime minister is no doubts can not resolve this crisis and she is not qualified to stay longer as the PM of this country. She really need to step down for the sake of all Thais.

The so called Democratic party is a shame for Thailand and all the whole Asian world. All protest leaders must be jailed and blocked for life for any political activity.

DEMOCRACY could thrive in Thailand, if radicalism were to be put down. In a true - democracy you must have law and order, i.e., the military and the police should have stopped Suthep's radical movement. When Suthep made threats to the Shinawatra clan, he should have been jailed. Where are the police and military officers?

Yes, they are desperate to turn the flow of taxpayer money back on, now that it has temporarily been shut off!!!

Seriously, the protesters are so desperate that they are going to lay siege to the PM's residence. They are becoming more and more despicable and hopefully their followers will realize how pitiful their efforts and behavior have become. Outrageous!

You are 100% right. This protesters destroy Thailand. And that they will go in the PM's private life is disgusting. And they call themselve democrats, what a joke.

Only 2 rally sites? Are their overinflated numbers dwindling even more?

If the protesters can not distinguish between protests against policies / people as public figures and their private life - then maybe some pro-government protesters should lay siege to Suthep's and his families private residence. Then maybe he would realize that you do not drag the family and children into this dirty business!

Feb2 seems like a light year away for PheuThai Party members. Everybody in the Party is so itchy to have a new life that might never come!
