PAD to continue protesting but cut down to one rally site
By The Nation

The People's Alliance for Democracy has resolved to continue its protests although it has agreed to just confine to one rally site inside Government House, PAD leader Chamlong Srimuang said.

The decision is in response to a suggestion by a number of academics that the PAD should suspend street protests following the punishment of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra to serve two years in jail for committing conflict of interest.

Chamlong said the PAD-led protests would focus dual objectives - opposing the charter rewrite and pressuring the government to quit in order to assume responsibility for the October 7 violent crackdown.

He said the PAD will not rebuild the rally stage at Makawan Rangsak Bridge which was dismantled to make way for the royal motorcade scheduled for tomorrow's ceremony for the King Chulalongkorn Memorial Day at the Royal Plaza.
