The group of marchers led by former Bangkok MPs Phutthipong Punnakan arrived at the national police office, where they were joined by large numbers of supporters who made their own way there. As the crowd grew they blocked Rama 1 road and occupied the skywalk linking Siam Paragon and CentralWorld.

The police sent Pol Gen Udom Raksilatham out to negotiate with the crowd. He said the police chief was at  Government House. Mr Phutthipong sought the agreement of the protest supporters, who said they would wait and meet only with Pol Gen Adul.

The protesters remained in front of the national police office as of 2pm.
