The first group of red-shirted protestors riding motorcycles arrived at the 11th Infantry Regiment at 10:00 a.m. local time, as more red-shirts are expected to follow them and rally at the military camp where the Peace- keeping Operation Command is located and the Prime Minister is temporarily dwelled during a massive rally starting from Friday.

The pioneer team of the red-shirts, riding motorcycles, have arrived at the military camp, located at northern Bangkok, which is home to the government's Peace-keeping Operation Command that is in charge of the implementation of the Internal Security Act (ISA) during and after the red-shirts rally as well as the safe house for Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and his deputy Suthep Thaugsuban.

Weng Tochirakarn, a core red-shirts leader, said the supporters of the anti-government movement the United Front of Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) will rally at the camp for two or three hours before they return and join their main force at Phan Fa Bridge.

It was reported that reinforcements of troops were made at the military camp early this morning.

Three helicopters of the army are on standby inside the camp to transport Abhisit, Suthep and top brass out in case of emergency.

The red-shirts on Sunday noon issued a statement at Phan Fa Bridge, demanding the government dissolve the House of Representatives within 24 hours.

The red-shirts movement is staging a mass rally to topple the Abhisit administration, and tens of thousands of supporters from across the country had swarmed to the capital city since Friday.
