Busy Pathumwan as 'main rally site'

- +

The busy Pathumwan intersection will be the venue for the main anti-government rally stage on Jan 13, the day of the mass shutdown of Bangkok, while the Democracy Monument site will be closed, the People's Democratic Reform Committee announced on Thursday night. 

The Pathumwan intersection is near Ratchaprasong intersection, the capital's upscale shopping district, where the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) held a mass street rally that turned violent in 2010.

Five other intersections in inner Bangkok and Chaeng Wattana Road will become central rally sites for Monday’s mass rallies, PDRC co-leader Sathit Wongnongtoey said.
