The protesters first gathered at Ratchaprasong intersection about 1pm. Then they moved along Ploenchit Road to Asok intersection and then to Asok Montri and Phetchaburi roads to Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction Plc.

At Sino-Thai, protest leaders slammed the giant company for having connections with Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul and giving financial support to the Prayut government.

Sino-Thai is owned by Mr Anutin’s family.

Then they told demonstrators to head for the residence of Deputy Agriculture and Cooperatives Minister Thammanat Prompow on Rama IX Road.

Soon the children of RTP officers going to ask: 'Papa, why you fight my friends who demonstrate for in 2014/2015 promised democracy within 2 years, but things move in opposite direction' ?
