About 300 passenger van operators parked their vehicles on the fringe of the anti-government rally at Victory Monument on Thursday in a protest against the People's Democratic Reform Committee's plan to shut down Bangkok on Monday, traffic police commander Jirasan Kaewsaenga-ek said.
Pol Maj Gen Jirasan said more than 300 passenger vans from different areas of Bangkok and neighbouring provinces began arriving at Victory Monument at 9.45am. The main rally is at Democracy Monument, which is nearby.
The van operators complain the ongoing anti-government protests, led by PDRC secretary-general Suthep Thaugsuban, have affected business and they are losing money.
