Bangkok Gov. Chadchart Sittipunt announced seven area to accommodate demonstrations in line with the Public Assembly Act.

The venue plan is aimed at keeping order and protecting national security, public safety and the rights of general people, Chadchart said.

The seven zones are:

  • Town Square in front of City Hall in Phra Nakhon District
  • The Bangkok Youth Center in Din Daeng District
  • A public square under the Ratchawipha interchange in Chatuchak District
  • The parking lot in front of the Phra Khanong District office
  • The 72nd Anniversary Stadium in Min Buri District
  • The Chaloem Phrakiat Sports Center in Thung Khru District
  • Monthon Phirom Park in Taling Chan District

Demonstration organizers must inform respective district offices of their plans at least 24 hours in advance so that relevant officials will have enough time to prepare facilities and security measures for demonstrators.

Organizers and demonstrators are required to protect government-owned property and will be held responsible if their demonstrations cause damage to government-owned property.
