PHOTOS: อารยะขัดขืน รื้อรั้วทำเนียบ-CLIMBING OVER WALL OF GOVERNMENT HOUSE
It took about 15 minutes for some 30 men from the Network of Students and People for the Reform of Thailand, a faction of the People’s Democratic Reform Committee, to remove the barbed wire inside the Government House after they climbed over the wall at Gate Two.
Police guarding the Government House yelled at the group telling them not to trespass on government’s premise but to no avail.
However, there was no clash between the police and the intruders.
The protesters have demanded the police to move out of the Government House because they are angry with the police for accusing the protesters of being rebels.
Protest leaders using megaphones to verbally attack hundreds of anti-riot police inside Government House as they led protesters to demolish barriers and cut barbed wires placed around the compound by the police before noon today.
The protesters began to surround the compound accusing the police of defying the order of the People’s Democratic Reform Council (PDRC) to abandon the premise by 12 hours or at 10.30 a.m. today.
As the police did not respond to the order, they then surrounded all exits and prohibited the police to leave.
Protesters at press time are confronting the anti-riot police and they again delivered what they said was a last ultimatum for the police to take off their uniforms and walk out in one hour.
They said if the police remained stubborn, they would lock the police inside which now has all water supply and electricity cut.
Situation remained tense at 1.30 p.m. with the protesters playing patriotic songs to encourage the protesters to block all exits and entrances and to wait for next action if the one hour deadline passing with no response from the police.
They vowed to seize the compound with peace but would retaliate if they were harmed by the police. They accused the police inside Government House of using slingshots against protesters.
Now they have recruited 200 volunteers to take action after the one-hour deadline expire and ready to retaliate the police immediately.
