PDRC protesters head for Lumpini Park

BANGKOK, March 2--- The anti-government People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) protesters on Sunday have left a rally site at Pathumwan intersection for the protest venue at Lumpini Park.

Protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban, together with co-leaders and Network of Students and People for Thailand's Reform (NSPTR) coordinator Uthai Yodmanee, led the PDRC supporters on a move from the Pathumwan rally site to Lumpini Park protest site this morning.

The group marched along Phaya Thai Road to Rama IV Road where Lumpini Park is located.

Meanwhile, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) staff began cleaning up of the protest venue.

In a related development, protesters from other protest venues--- Asok, Silom, and Ratchaprasong--- have been moved to join the rally at the Lumpini protest site.

However, Buddhist monk Phra Buddha Issara did not move to join the Lumpini rally site. The monk stood firm that the Chaeng Wattana stage would remain.

The move came after Mr Suthep on Friday night (Feb 28) announced an end to "Bangkok Shutdown," which started from Jan 13 in an attempt to oust the caretaker government in order to pave the way for political reform.

He said that the PDRC would relocate the protest sites to Lumpini Park on Sunday and the rally stages would be dismantled to return traffic around the capital to the public on Monday.

However, he asserted that the PDRC would continue their fight against what the group called the "Thaksin regime."

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
