Anti-government protesters on honking and revving vehicles roamed inner Bangkok streets on Tuesday afternoon, calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha.
The protesters first gathered at Ratchaprasong intersection about 1pm. Then they moved along Ploenchit Road to Asok intersection and then to Asok Montri and Phetchaburi roads to Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction Plc.
At Sino-Thai, protest leaders slammed the giant company for having connections with Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul and giving financial support to the Prayut government.
Sino-Thai is owned by Mr Anutin’s family.
Then they told demonstrators to head for the residence of Deputy Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Thammanat Prompow on Rama IX Road.
From Mr Thammanat’s residence, demonstrators moved on Asok-Din Daeng Road heading for King Power Group on Rang Nam Road.
On the way, some protestors confronted security officials who blocked access to Vibhavadi Rangsit Road near Din Daeng intersection, leading to the residence of the prime minister. Big firecrackers were thrown there.
