Protesters to continue blockades of govt offices

- +

The People's Democratic Reform Committee will continue to lay siege to government offices but will lift some roadblocks, including the barricades on Rama 8 bridge, PDRC leader Suthep Thaugsuban announced on Tuesday. 

Dismantling of the barricades on the bridge will begin on Wednesday, and  would be completed in two days, to enable teachers and school children to travel across it unhindered, it was announced.

.Mr Suthep said that since the main objective of the Bangkok shutdown operation is to force the Yingluck Shinawatra administration to yield to the demand by the "great mass" of people for it to resign, the PDRC had laid siege to important government offices, wanting to ensure that they do not serve as a tool of the "Thaksin regime".
