The anti-government "red-shirts" announced Wednesday they are going to cancel the Phan Fah Bridge rally site and their main gathering site will be held only at the Rathchaprasong Intersection, Thai News Agency reported.

The "red-shirts" are expected to start leaving the Phan Fah Bridge for the Rathchaprasong Intersection from Wednesday evening, "red-shirted" core leader Natthawut Saikua said.

And, the gathering only at the Rathchaprasong Intersection will be officially organized from Thursday (April 15), Natthawut said.

They have demanded Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva to " immediately" dissolve the lower House of parliament and hold a new general election.

The "red-shirts" have still believed that, apart from the House dissolution, there is no other solution to the country's ongoing political conflict.
