About 3,000 red-shirts of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) are heading for the Thaicom satellite station in Pathum Thani's Lat Lum Kaew district, according to the spokesman of the Centre for Public Administration in Emergency Situations.Col Sansern Kaemkamnerd said the head of the convoy of vehicles of the red shirts was shortly after noon reported to be at the five-way Lat Phrao junction, heading for Lat Lum Kaew along Vibhavadi=Rangsit highway.
He said under the emergency law, police and soldiers would take steps to protect the station.
The protesters would first be told that they were breaking the law. If this failed to stop them, law-enforcing authorities at the facility would push them back using shields, water cannons, loud speakers, tear gas, batons and rubber bullets, Col Sansern said.
The government forces would keep the protesters informed of every action to be taken.
