    Tight security in capital to block protests

    Eight key Bangkok locations closed after elusive red-shirt activist plans anti-coup rally at Ratchaprasong

    Thousands of police and troops will be deployed today to prevent protests at eight locations around Bangkok and the Ratchaprasong intersection and the shopping district will be closed, a senior police officer said yesterday.

    The eight spots are the Ratchaprasong intersection, King Taksin Monument, the Thepharak intersection, Victory Monument, Democracy Monument, Laksi Monument, Central Bang Na, and Seacon Square on Srinakharin Road.

    Thirty-eight companies of troops and police will guard the eight spots and rapid deployment units will be on standby, Deputy Police Commissioner-General Pol Colonel Somyos Pumphanmuang said.

    Traffic on the four roads leading to Victory Monument will be also closed from 4pm until the rally there ends, the Traffic Police Bureau announced.

    This red yellow thing has been a misdirection hocus-pocus device for quite a time now.

    That's not what the true divisions are.
