Leaders of anti-government protesters in Thailand have decided to gather all their supporters in Bangkok’s business district in a “final” attempt to topple Abhisit Vejjajiva, the prime minister.
The so-called red shirts decided to move thousands of demonstrators from a camp in the capital’s old city, the scene of bloody clashes with security forces last week, and ruled out any further talks with the government.
“We will use the Rachaprasong areas as the final battleground to oust the government,” Nattawut Saikuar, one of the red shirt leaders, told reporters on Wednesday.
“There will be no more negotiations, no more talks.” The business district and the presence of families,tourists and expatriates there, would make it difficult for security forces to move against the protesters.
“We believe the government will try to disperse us again in the next couple of days,” Nattawut said.
