The People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) travels to Yothin Burana School today (August, 25th) to give moral support to the students who earlier protested against the demolition of the school to construct a new parliament house.

PAD Leaders Somsak Kosaisuk (สมศักดิ์ โกสัยสุข) and Chamlong Srimuang led the protestors to the school, asking the students to join them. However, the school principal said he fears that the situation may excalalte and therefore prohibit the students from coming out of the school to join PAD. About 20 students carry a cloth sign to thank PAD for the moral support in front of the school. The students affirm their protest against the school demolition has no hidden agenda and they only want to keep their school.

All entrances and exits of the school are closed to prevent chaos but it depends on each teacher whether to cancel the classes today. Some classrooms have to call off the class as they are adjacent to the road where PAD gathers. More than 200 police officers have been dispatched to the area to provide security.
