Luangpu Buddha Issara told demonstrators at the Chaeng Wattana to gather in front of the main state and stay put as riot police were making preparations to clear the rally site.
The monk told the demonstrators that he expected police would move in to try to push out the protesters in the afternoon.
Provincial Police Bureau 1 Commissioner Lt Gen Naret Nanthachote confirmed that police would try to clear the Chaeng Wattan rally site again because the demonstration caused a lot of trouble to the people.
He said police would try to negotiate with the protest leader to leave before launching an operation.
