Democracy Monument protesters declare strengthened rally Friday

BANGKOK, Nov 14 –Former Democrat MP Suthep Thaugsuban announced last night that the anti-government demonstration on Ratchadamnoen Avenue will be elevated to a higher level on Friday.
He called on protesters to meet at 6pm Friday to listen to tougher measures for dealing with the Shinawatra family.
The former Surat Thani MP said some of the civil disobedience measures were effective, citing a whistle-blowing protest against a Cabinet member at a Bangkok hotel yesterday.
At a separate rally site on Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge, Nitithorn Lamlua, advisor to the Network of Students and People for Thailand’s Reform (NSPTR), announced that his group will march to the Silom business centre today to protest against the government’s amendment of Section 190 of the Constitution and call on the government to urgently help Veera Somkwamkid who was arrested in Cambodia and imprisoned in the neighbouring country.
The group vowed to continue fighting until the government steps down.  
Meanwhile, the Constitution Court yesterday rejected a former senator’s petition against Democrat leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and ex-deputy premier Suthep Thaugsuban for their harsh action at an anti-government demonstration in Bangkok.
Ruengkrai Leekitwattana charged the pair with violating the Constitution for an announcement before a mass rally on Ratchadamnoen Avenue to set up a people’s tribunal.
He asked the court to dissolve the Democrat Party and revoke Mr Abhisit’s and Mr Suthep’s rights to vote.
The Constitution Court unanimously ruled out Mr Rueangkrai’s lawsuit, reasoning that their political demonstrations were organised peacefully in accord with the guidelines of the Constitution. (MCOT online news)

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
