More clashes as ‘car mob’ rally heads to Prayut’s home
Violent clashes broke out between police and protesters again at the Din Daeng intersection on Sunday as thousands of Bangkok motorists converged to hold a “car mob” rally against the government.
The motorists gathered at key locations including Ratchaprasong and Lat Phrao intersections before heading towards Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha’s home to demand his resignation over the government’s mismanagement of the Covid-19 crisis.
The rally, which was held simultaneously in 30 other provinces, was led by red-shirt leader Nattawut Saikuar and fellow red-shirt activist Sombat Boonngam-anong.
Clashes broke out despite leaders declaring they “come with a flag for peace, not war”.
