Police block Chaeng Watthana road

Thung Song Hong police have blocked Chaeng Watthana road to traffic ahead of the talks scheduled for 1pm Sunday with People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) core member Luang Pu Buddha Issara to seek the return of an area at the government office complex blocked by protesters.

Two companies of police, about 30 vans, pick-up trucks and vehicles for detaining suspects have been used to block Chaeng Wattana road from Soi Chaeng Watthana 14 to the ToT building.

The move prompted PDRC protesters and guards at the government offices complex to go on full alert.

Pol Col Athip Pongsiwapai, the Thung Song Hong police chief, is scheduled to hold talks with Luang Pu Buddha Issara at 1pm after talks on Feb 14 and 15 were unsuccessful.

What good reason do the protestors have to continue now.

So much patience with such an ignorant bunch of extremists. As much as I adore the government and police for their unviolent tactics, IMO enough is enough. Don`t use any guns, not even rubber bullets, they only invite "third hands and MIB" to use real guns and blame the police. Use force, pure menpower and teargas. Go in in the early morning hours and get it done.

Thai society is sick and in unhealthy state. People is prone to like to protest and want to try up-root TS and family from Thai politic. Is it possible or should have to do it to spread hatred upon a person and a family? This is what kind of politic? Can Thais be happy if TS and family are forever banned to come back and his family members are barred to enter politic as career? If TS supporters do the same tactic to up-root Suthep and others would Suthep supporters can accept it? It is so difficult to live happily with full of hatred in heart. Release it you will see the sky is more brighter and the sea is much wide.
