Military officers oppose Pitak Siam

- +

Alumni from Class 5 and 10 of the Armed Forces Academies Preparatory School (AFAPS) will hold a peaceful rally at a Bangkok hotel on Friday morning in protest at the leader of the Pitak Siam group, Gen Boonlert Kaewprasit, and his supporters. 

The Class 5 and 10 members will meet at the Miracle Grand Convention Hotel at 10am to announce their opposition to Gen Boonlert, a member of Class 1 of the AFAPS, and his group which is mobilising supporters to try to bring down the Yingluck Shinawatra government.

The general has called for a military coup to overthrow the Pheu Thai-led administration. "I'd love to see a coup,'' he told the press while heading up an Oct 28 anti-government rally at the Royal Turf Club in the Nang Loeng area of Bangkok.
