Police expect 70,000 plus at Pitak Siam rally

- +

Police expect about 76,000 protesters at the weekend rally to demand the resignation of the government organised by the Pitak Siam group, and authorities are worried that agitators could stir up violence during the protest. 

The projection by the Metropolitan Police Bureau (MPB) is close to the earlier estimate by the pro-government United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD).

UDD leader Jatuporn Prompan earlier predicted a turnout of 30,000 people on Saturday and 40,000 more on Sunday.
