10.january :Here are some updated details for the 13th:
– We are closing Chaeng Wattana Road entirely. Government Complex will be inaccessible. Please note that Mongkut Wattana private hospital has volunteered to take care of our friends stationed there. We are indebted to you.
– Lardprao junction will be completely blocked off to private cars (apart from medical vehicles, those with medical emergencies, and the other types of purposes I’ve mentioned previously).
– Victory Monument, Lumpini/Ratchaprasong/Asoke junctions will also be completely blocked off (with the same exceptions as Lardprao junction).
– Pathumwan intersection. This will be our new home.
Our other activity consists of surrounding and closing off government offices so officials cannot enter. Of course, the Ministry of Public Health will not be shut down as the civil servants there have already decided to shut down the Ministry to join us. As I’ve said before, we are NOT shutting down any airports. Tourists and travellers can come and go freely. Occupy Bangkok does NOT involve the shutting down of any type of public transportation, buses, trains, sky trains, underground trains, etc.
