Anti-govt protesters declare Dec 1 day of great victory

BANGKOK, Nov 30 – Former Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban announced last night that all anti-government protesting groups have merged into one with the strong determination to wipe out the Thaksin regime on Sunday.
He went on stage at the Government Complex on Chaengwattana Road with alliance groups, business leaders and academics – all of whom have vowed to protest in unison under the freshly-named “People’s Committee to Change Thailand to Complete Democracy under the Monarchy.”
He said the alliance group has set December 1 as the day of great victory over the Thaksin regime in a peaceful, non-violent and unarmed movement by the people.
He said the Government Complex would be sealed off on the weekend, barring civil servants from entering their offices on Monday except for three agencies – the Administrative Court, Constitution Court and the Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters.
Protesters would occupy the CAT Telecom and TOT buildings today, he said, claiming that employees of the two state enterprises have supported the protesters’ move.
Other state properties including Government House, National Police Bureau, Metropolitan Police Command, Education Ministry and Dusit Zoo will be occupied on Sunday, said Mr Suthep.
He said the seizures will spread to the Labour Department which houses the Centre for Administration of Peace and Order, Commerce Ministry and Public Relations Department but the state’s air, rail and bus services will operate without interruption.
The Government Complex will be the command centre but other rally sites operated by alliance groups being held daily as usual, he said.
Mr Suthep’s anti-government group runs two other demonstration sites at Democracy Monument on Ratchdamnoen Avenue and the Finance Minister on Soi Aree.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
