BANGKOK — Security officers will closely monitor a weekend march organized by activists in Bangkok who are protesting the junta's suppression of civil rights, a spokesperson for the junta warned today.
"We will monitor [the march] closely," said Col. Winthai Suwaree. "If we find anything that violates the law, we will be required to take action."
Col. Winthai was referring to a three-day walk organized by the anti-coup group 'Resistant Citizens' that will begin in Bangbuathong district on Saturday. The group has invited the public to join them on the 50-km march to Pathumwan Police Station in Bangkok, where four of the group’s members must report for violating the junta’s ban on public protests last month.
