Protest in Bangkok

The red-shirts from both Phan Fa Bridge and Ratchaprasong intersection rally sites have headed to the Thaicom satellite station in Pathum Thani's Lat Lum Kaeo district to get their satellite-based television station, the People Channel, back on air.
Natthawut Saikua, a core leader of the United front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), announced at the Ratchaprasong rally stage earlier that the red-shirts would go to the Thaicom station to take it back from the soldiers and then reopen the satellite-based People Channel.
Mr Natthawut said the red-shirts would not return to their main rally sites until they succeeded in their aim.
Mr Natthawut said a report that the red-shirts would rally at homes of the prime minister, his deputy Suthep Thaugsuban, Gen Prayuth Chan-Ocha, the deputy army chief, and ASTV and NBT was incorrect.

The red-shirts TV station was shut down soon after the government declared a state of emergency on Wednesday evening.
About 6,000 soldiers were reported tobe deployed inside and around the Thaicom station to prevent the red-shirts from entering the  ground.
