Protests To Start Every Day at BTS Asok From September 2

Following a peaceful car mob in Pathum Thani, protest leaders announced a new series of conventional demonstrations starting this week.

Protests would be held every evening across the country starting September 2, the activists said.

After the rally ended outside the provincial hall in Pathum Thani, Sombat Boonngam-anong and Nattawut Saikuar said the new daily protests would take place in Bangkok, in front of BTS Asok station from 4pm to 8pm.

Protest leaders stated they would continue demonstrating until Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha resigns.

Anti-government activists from other provinces will announce other daily protest sites for the events, they added.

Again, Nattawut demanded Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s resignation, saying that a new prime minister must be elected fairly.

The red-shirt leader thinks that mounting pressure from daily protests will force Prayut to step down from his position in the next two weeks.

Meanwhile, thousands of cars joined the final political convoy that rolled from the capital to Pathum Thani for five hours.

Protesters started moving from the Kasetsart intersection near Kasetsart University before crossing the finish line outside Pathum Thani’s provincial hall.

Before the convoy set out, Sombat told the media that night rallies would be held as planned and in the same site across all the provinces. Therefore, people can attend them after ending their workday.

Sombat also stressed that demonstrations would continue indefinitely until the prime minister resigns.
