PDRC will close all rally sites, set up new one at Lumpini Park


BANGKOK, 28 February 2014  Leader of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) Suthep Thaugsuban has announced to close the group’s three main demonstration sites on Monday but insisted on fighting against the government. A new rally site will be established at Lumpini Park.

Mr Suthep on Monday night announced the PDRC’s decision to open all roads it had closed since 13 January 2014. Traffic of Pathumwan, Ratchaprasong and Silom junctions, the PDRC’s main rally sites, would return to normal on Monday to facilitate Bangkokkians who had been affected by the traffic closure, he said.

The protest leader encouraged the PDRC supporters to gather at the new demonstration site at Lumpini Park and continue their protests against businesses of the Shinawatra family. The PDRC will also continue to surround government buildings in Bangkok.
