PDRC hits the streets

Protester on Petchburi Road

Suthep Thaugsuban announced at the Lumpini stage this morning that the anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) will march to parliament and five free-to-air TV stations today.

This morning, the PDRC split into six groups, each group marched to a different location in the city as the anti-government group tries to keep its promise that this final attempt to seize power and get rid of the Thaksin regime will work.

“We’re not going to take over anything. We’ll just be there to pray and regain our strength,” Suthep says “Our goal is to demand the country’s powerful adults talk to us. If they won’t do it in three days, the PDRC will solve the country’s problems and get rid of the Thaksin regime on our own.”

Suthep also challenged new caretaker Prime Minister Niwatthamrong Boonsongpaisan to contact him so he can hand the power back to the people.

The PRDC are marching to the stations of Channel 3, 5, 7, 8 and 11 to request the media stops broadcasting news that is positive about the caretaker government and discredits the PRDC, MThai reported.
