Rice farmers plan anti-govt protest

- +

Rice farmers in five lower northern provinces will stage a rally in Phichit today to protest against the caretaker government's delay in paying them money owed under the rice-pledging scheme. 

Their plan was unveiled on Monday by Warong Detkitwikrom, former Democrat MP for Phitsanulok, during a  speech at the main protest rally venue near the Democracy Monument.

The farmers from Phitsanulok, Nakhon Sawan, Phichit, Sukhothai and Kamphaeng Phet will gather at Pluak Sung Intersection in Phichit, tired of having waited for five months for the money from their pledged harvest and still not been paid.
