About 100 members of the Thai Patriots group on Thursday morning gathered in front of the Ministry of Defence building compound and demonstrated against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. 

The protesters, led by Chaiwat Sinsuwong, blocked the entrance gate of the ministry to prevent Ms Yingluck, who is now also defence minister, and her deputy Gen Yuthasak Sasiprapa from entering the ministry.

Mr Chaiwat said the rally was organised to protect the dignity of soldiers and the armed forces and to protest against the Thaksin regime.
