Protesters to march on Ratchadapisek

Anti-government protesters under the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) have marched from Lat Phrao five-way intersection planning to campaign along Ratchadapisek road.

The protesters, led by PDRC secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban, left around 10am, walking along Lat Phrao road and then turning right to get onto Ratchadapisek road. They plan to encourage people not to cast their vote on Sunday and instead join the protest  rally and turn all roads in Bangkok into parking spaces for vehicles.

Many protesters from Asok intersection, Lumpini Park and Victory Monument joined those from Lat Phrao for Friday march.

The protesters plan to reach Fortune Town at Rama 9 intersection in the afternoon and end today’s activity. Then they will go back to their bases.

I love the idea of turning Bangkok into a free parking space but can't quite get my head around how I am going to extricate my my old Beetle when I need to zoom off to my second job that I need to take to pay for all the parking fines.

What does Suthep have to say to Thais that don't agree with him and are being greatly inconvenienced by these activities? In comparison to the Thaksin regime, who is inconveniencing Thais more?

Mr Suthep is trying to instigate riots with his advise to block all streets in BKK on Sunday,less then 50% of the people in the city support him,it is only a matter of time before people that have to work to feed their families revolt against the protesters.
