PAD threatens to lay siege on Parliament

People's Alliance for Democracy leader Pipop Thongchai on Friday threatened to lay seige on Parliament if the government went ahead to rewrite the Constitution.

Pipop said today's PAD's rally at Parliament was just a dress rehearsal for a showdown on August 18, the date for charter debate planned by the government.

Thousands of PAD-led protesters joined the procession from Makawan Rangsan Bridge, the PAD's main rally site, to Parliament.
