Suthep to abandon Democracy Monument rally site for other sites on Jan 13

Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban announced Friday night that his rally site at Democracy Monument on Rajdanoen Avenue will be shut down on January 13, the day he set to "shut down" Bangkok.

New rally stages will instead be set up at 20 major intersections where mass demonstrations will be held across Bangkok as a campaign to seize the capital, he said.

"For those of you desiring to join us at Rajdamnoen on the day, please come no later than the evening of January 12. We are leaving Democracy Monument for good on January 13 for other grounds and not looking back," he said.
