The planned rally by farmers from western provinces at the Office of the Defence Permanent Secretary on Monday will only be symbolic, National Security Council (NSC) chief Paradorn Pattanatabut said on Sunday.
Lt Gen Paradorn said the farmers would return to rally at the Commerce Ministry after a brief symbolic gathering in front of the Office of the Defence Permanent Secretary on Chaeng Wattana road, a temporary office of the cabinet, to pressure the government into paying them for their pledged rice.
The farmers would not set up a permanent rally site there because the space was limited, he said.
