Protest moves to Democracy Monument

23:17, February 27 - Moving to Democracy Monument - This is an attempt to provoke the government to take action against the protesters and keep the issue in the public eye after the crowd dwindled drastically after the first day. It is also the price of the involvement of political king-maker Sanoh Thienthong and other political heavyweights. As we had mentioned in the past, too many major political factions have invested too much in unseating Thaksin. They have no choice but to push the issue now at any cost. It is not clear if the protesters will stay at the monument tonight or disperse.
23:35, February 27 - Sondhi sets March 5 as the deadline for Thaksin to step down.
23:54, February 27 - Dozens of press vehicles have assembled at Democracy Monument awaiting the protesters.
00:27, February 28 - Protesters reach Democracy Monument.
01:20, February 28 - The protest ends and people are told to return for a three day protest March 5-8. Some protesters, including the Santi Asoke group, will stay at Sanam Luang.
