The PDRC now preferred to redefine the “Shutdown Bangkok” protest to “Occupy Bangkok” because what they planned to do will not shut down everything but merely government offices and residence of the caretaker prime ministers and her caretaker cabinet ministers, while mass transport services such as electric train services, normal bus and train services, as well as airports will not be affected.
Suthep said last night seven main intersections will be occupied by protesters to hold anti-government activities to pressure the resignation of the caretaker prime minister,].
He also made clear on non-violent protests in the Occupy Bangkok rallies.
But he warned protesters of the red-shirt infiltrators who were ordered by their leaders to wear normal shirts and mingle with the protesters at the PDRC rallies with intent to create violence.
He then asked protesters to help watch out for these infiltrators who might carry guns and might torch government buildings and other officers to put the blame on protesters so as to justify suppression of the protesters by the government.
He asked all the protesters not to retaliate even they are assaulted and stick to the non-violent protest to achieve the more important target to reform the country.
CAPO spokesman Pol Maj-Gen Piya Uthaiyo said that a total of 96 companies of police and troops comprising more than 14,000 personnel will be deployed to keep peace and order at important government offices and houses of government leaders.
He said exact locations to deploy the combined force of police and troop was under consideration as well as the normal and emergency operation plans.
He said more special orders would be issued to facilitate traffic and to prevent violence and ensure safety for protesters
