Thai protestsWith Thai street protests entering their seventh day, leaders in the evening of November 29 have vowed to “paralyse” public services until the government steps down. Civil Movement for Democracy leader Suthep Thaugsuban dramatically escalated his group’s anti-government protest once more, announcing a plan to storm all government agencies and crucial state enterprises including telecom firms TOT Plc and CAT Telecom Plc over the weekend.

Other targets to be stormed include Government House, parliament, Royal Thai Police, the Metropolitan Police Bureau, Interior Ministry, Education Ministry, Foreign Ministry and the Labour Ministry in which the government’s Center for the Administration of Peace and Order is located.

He spoke of a “total seizure” so that “the people’s revolution” would begin immediately, adding that is was “time for action now”.

Suthep has set his sights on declaring victory over the government for December 1.

Thai National Police chief Adul Saengsingkaew said people should “think carefully” about the invasion of state offices being illegal. Police would avoid using force but “if it is necessary”, operations would follow legal procedures and the law to restrain protesters from breaking into state premises, he said.
