Thai anti-government "red-shirts" Wednesday morning were heading to the a market in central province of Pathum Thani, where they will stage a rally to show moral support for the "red-shirts".

Several hundreds of the "red-shirts" gathered nearby the Saladaeng Intersection in Bangkok and left for their destination at about 10:30 a.m. aboard some 150 pickup trucks, Thai News Agency reported.

On April 26, "red-shirts" core leader Natthawut Saikua said mobile rallies would be held since the government is still attempting to disperse the "red-shirts" protesters.

The "red-shirts" rally has been held from March 12 and they are now gathering at the Rathchaprasong Intersection in the center of capital Bangkok.

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

They are viewing that, apart from the House dissolution, there is no other solution to the country's ongoing political conflict.
