At 7.55pm, the People's Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC)'s guards have taken control of the Pathumwan Intersection.



They set up barricade on the roads, closed the entrances to the skywalks but left one entrance on MBK side for people to go to skytrain station. 

Some 1,000 protesters led by the People's Democratic Reform Committee have started rallying at the Pathumwan Intersection Sunday night ahead of the Monday Bangkok Shutdown.
A spokeswoman at the Democracy Monument rally stage that the PDRC decided to send the protesters to seize the area to set up a stage for fear that police would try to block them on Monday.
