The pro-democracy movement has changed Wednesday’s rally venue to Siam Commercial Bank headquarters on Ratchadapisek Road in Bangkok’s Chatuchak district instead of the earlier planned Crown Property Bureau in Dusit district.

At 10.25pm on Tuesday, the Free Youth group posted a message on their Twitter account saying “BREAKING: The Nov 25th rally will take place at SCB headquarters!

“This move is to avoid clashing with an organised mob and avoid playing the tyrant’s game,” it said. “Meet us there at 3pm to claim back the property that should have been the people’s.”

Previously, the Ratsadon group had planned to stage a rally at the Crown Property Bureau on Wednesday. However, on Tuesday afternoon, police set up barbed wire around the premises in anticipation of a mob.
