Anti-government activists have vowed that protests will take place around the country every day and go on indefinitely until the Thai PM resigns. Protest leaders Sombat Boonngamanong and Nattawut Saikuar were speaking following the conclusion of a peaceful “car mob” rally, which ended in the central province of Pathum Thani.

The rally had begun at the Kasetsart intersection near Kasetsart University. According to a Bangkok Post report, thousands of cars took part in the final convoy, travelling for 5 hours from the capital to Pathum Thani. Prior to the convoy getting underway, Sombat announced the plan for daily protests around the country, adding that they will take place in the evening so people can attend after work.

The Bangkok Post reports that the activists spoke again outside the provincial hall in Pathum Thani and confirmed protests would take place at Bangkok’s BTS Asok station from 4pm to 8pm every day until Prayut Chan-o-cha resigns. Sombat says the location of provincial rallies will be confirmed by organisers.

“We will rally from September 2 onwards until Prayut resigns.”

Nattawut has echoed the call for the PM to resign, adding that a replacement would have to be fairly elected. He says he’s hopeful the mounting pressure caused by daily protests will leave the PM with no option but to resign in about 2 weeks’ time.
