Khon Kaen reds heading to Bangkok

More than 600 red-shirts in Khon Kaen this morning gathered in front of the provincial’s city hall in preparation for traveling to join anti-government rally in Bangkok, reports said.

A total of 130 pickup trucks will be used to transport the red-shirts to the capital.

Supporters of the pro-Thaksin United front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) from various provinces in the Northeast planned to converge at Lam Takong dam in Nakhon Ratchasima’s Pak Chong district this afternoon.

The red-shirts plan to use two 18-wheel trailers to lead their motorcade to break through any barricade likely to be set up by security forces.

Anti-riot police were deployed inside and around the city hall compound to control the situation.
