PAD to set up stage at NBTAugust 26th, 2008 - 1:47 pm ICT by Amrit Rashmisrisethi
The People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD) announces that it will set up its second stage at the office of the National Broadcasting Services of Thailand (NBT).
Sources say PAD has tried efforts to broadcast at NBT while NBT news anchors, Jirayu Huangsap (จิรายุ ห่วงทรัพย์) and Tuangporn Atsawawilai (ตวงพร อัศววิไล), are currently hosting a program from an Outside-Broadcast (OB) truck now stationed in the Metropolitan Police Headquarters.
However, a group of PAD protestors have traveled to the Metropolitan Police Headquarters on Sri Ayutthaya Road to expel NBT’s news team’s live broadcasting and pressure police to release 80 men suspected from breaking into NBT this morning.
Meanwhile, security has been increased at the Royal Thai Armed Forces Headquarters where the Cabinet held a meeting today as the Government House has been surrounded by the protestors.
