Anti-govt protesters marching to 13 sites across Bangkok

BANGKOK, Nov 25 - The anti-government protesters at the Thai capital's Democracy Monument started marching to 13 establishments and national media headquarters around Bangkok to put pressure against the government as part of their attempt to stamp out the "Thaksin Regime".
The 13 locations are the Supreme Command headquarters on Chaeng Wattana Road; Air Force headquarters in Don Mueang; Army headquarters on Rajdamnoen Avenue; Navy headquarters in Bangkok Noi; the Royal Thai Police Office in Pathumwan; Metropolitan Police Bureau; Channel 3 on Rama IV Road; Channel 5 on Phahon Yothin Road; Channel 7 near the old Mor Chit Bus Terminal; Channel 9 on Rama IX Road; Channel 11 on Vibhavadi Rangsit Road; Interior Ministry on Asadang Road; and the Budget Bureau on Rama VI Road.
The police have tightened security at the 13 locations. Motorists have been warned that the traffic across Bangkok will be badly jammed as most of the protesters are moving to their destinations.

Former Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban, who has spearheaded the rally, led supporters to the Budget Bureau. His fellow former Democrat MPs have led other groups of protesters to other sites.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has called a urgent meeting of security agencies at Government House to evaluate the situation.

She declined to say whether the government would announce a state of emergency to handle the demonstration, saying that she would discuss the matter with the security agencies. (MCOT online news)
