The supporters of anti-government movement "red-shirts" in Thai capital Bangkok will voluntarily finish Friday's rally and disperse by 5:00 p.m. local time after they march by various routes in downtown area, said a rally organiser.

Jatuporn Promphan said the red-shirts have assembled Friday as a gesture to kick off their mass rally, which is scheduled for March 12-14 in Bangkok in a bid to push the government to dissolve the parliament and hold general elections.

After holding religious rites at five rendezvous locations in Bangkok, namely King Taksin monument at Wongwian Yai, the Lak Si democracy monument in Bang Khen, Lumpini Park, Thailand-Japan sports complex at Din Daeng, and the Bang Na intersection, the red- clad groups began their march separately.

According to the plan for Friday's activities they announced earlier, the Wongwian Yai troop under Jatuporn Promphan will march mainly along Phetkasem road, while the group from Lak Si will march past many places including the 11th Infantry Regiment on Phahon Yothin road.
