Satriwitthaya School near Bangkok’s Democracy Monument will be closed on Friday to protect its pupils from any possible harm during the continuing anti-government and anti-amnesty protests in the area. The school is located on Dinso road in Phra Nakhon district, near to the anti-amnesty bill rally site at Democracy Monument.
The protest against the government’s proposed blanket amnesty legislation is being led by the Democrats, including party leader Abhisit Vejjajiva and former deputy premier for security affairs and MP for Surat Thani Suthep Thaugsuban.
Parents have expressed concern over the confrontational nature of the protesters, and are worried about the safety of their children in view of the mob’s vicious attack on an innocent man. Many are worried about a repeat of violence reported during the Democrat-endorsed protest in June 2013.
