PAD bracing itself for crackdown


By The Nation


Govt set to declare state of emergency on the Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang

airports, as coup rumors continue to swirl


PAD protesters are bracing themselves for police operations to dislodge

them from the Suvarnabhumi and Don Muang airports as the government

is reportedly set to enforce a state of emergency in the two areas.


Protest leaders at Government House surreptitiously told their followers that

"this may be our last night". With the leaders having always said the "war"

would end in a couple of days, that can be interpreted as a positive statement.

But with the state of emergency imminent, the remark also sounded ominous.


Protesters at three rally grounds _ Don Muang, Suvarnabhumi and Government House _

were also advised to take off their yellow shirts and put on ones with different colors

if they were to leave the areas.


Prime Minister Somchai Wongsawat is scheduled to give another TV address

around 8.30 pm, sources said.


Public Health Minister Chalerm Yoobamrung confirmed that the Cabinet

resolved to declare state of emergency over the Suvarnabhumi and Don Mueang airports.
