Protesters march along Phahon Yothin

Protesters of the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) led by Suthep Thaugsuban are marching from the Lat Phrao intersection along Phahon Yothin road to campaign for more Bangkok people to join their shutdown of the capital.

The protesters started to move from the Lat Phrao intersection at 10am.

They are moving along Phahon Yothin road to Kasetsart University, after which they will return to Ratchayothin intersection and then turn left along Ratchadapisek road.

The protesters are expected to return to Lat Prao intersection shortly after midday since Mr Suthep is scheduled to attend the funeral of Prakong Chuchan, a PDRC guard who was seriously injured by a bomb on Banthat Thong road on Friday and pronounced dead in hospital on Saturday morning. The funeral is being at Wat Thepsirintarawat.

The protesters at the Lat Phrao intersection were joined in the march by others led by Luang Pu Buddha Issara from the Chaeng Wattana rally site.

true but the protest is running out of steam. Witness all the roadblocks being manned by anything but Bangkokians.

It`s been a long time that any numbers of protesters were published. Whenever I passed by a protest zone I counted far more vendors than protesters. Mr Suthep, your last hope to provoce escalation and thus have the army interveine to your favour simply doesn`t work. You are losing support. How many more lifes and how much more money and business do you want to destroy by trying desperately not to lose face? You lost at the very moment you decided to change the good intended and successful protest against the amnesty draft into your personal agenda to grap for power that doesn`t belong to you but to the majority.

The anti-government rally is focused to paralyse state agencies in bangkok. It is meaningless to rally on a beautiful and quiet Sunday.

Mr Suthep can march as much as he wants, the so called Bangkok shutdown is not working. Most people are treating it as a carnival. The man is loosing steam, and after the grenade fiasco,getting more desperate. So what next, More Plots?

I am wondering whether this Forum is now being used by Pheu Thai for misinformation purposes. I am surprized how many pro-Thaksin & pro-Pheu Thai people have appeared on the Forum since the anti-government demonstrations started. The people are saying exactly what people like Prompong are saying publicly. Bear in mind that Thaksin has said publicly recently that he knew about the Red Shirts storing weapons in Bangkok, but so many posters are commenting on PRDC set-ups and armed protesters while ignoring the possibility that the Red Shirts are behind the bombings and shootings. It's suspicious.
