Anti-government protesters on Monday cleaned Lumpini Park as they prepared to move to a new rally site at Makkhawan Rangsan Bridge on Rajdamnoen Road.

The People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC) protesters had occupied the park for two months. The protesters were seen packing their belongings and their tents.

They are scheduled to depart the park at 2.14pm. The march to Makkhawan Rangsan will be led by Suthep and core leaders.

The march will pass Rajdamri road, Rajprasong and Pathumwan intersections, Phaya Thai road, Rajthevi intersection, Urupong, Yommarat and Nang Leung intersections before arriving at Makkhawan Rangsan which is opposite United Nations headquarters.

Upon arrival at the site, some protesters will go to the Parliament to monitor the Senate's special session on the political situation.

Bomb squads are scheduled to check the park for possible abandoned explosives after the protesters leave.
