Protesters seal off Commerce Ministry

Anti-government protesters of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee on Tuesday morning blocked the gates at the Ministry of Commerce in Sanambinnam area, the Public Relations Department reported.

The PDRC protesters, led by Luang Pu Buddha Issara, the abbot of Wat Or Noi, moved from their main rally site at the government complex on Chaeng Wattana road.

They urged the ministry’s officials to stop working and join their rally to pressure caretaker Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and her cabinet ministers to step down.

The protesters intend to prevent officials from entering the ministry until 4pm, according to the department.
