Thai protesters vow no surrender as police clear demo sites

Thai opposition protesters yesterday refused to end their rallies in Bangkok, despite a vow by police to clear more demonstration sites.

It follows an operation to reclaim the besieged government headquarters.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's government is attempting to seize back key state buildings after more than three months of mass protests seeking to oust the prime minister.

"We will continue fighting. We will not be shaken by the police operation," Akanat Promphan, a spokesman for the protesters, said. "No matter whether police succeed in reclaiming the rally sites or not, we will keep on protesting." - AFP.
