Thousands of red shirts from the North and the Northeast have started their march Friday’s morning, expecting to reach Bangkok by Sunday.
Those from the North are expected to converge and stay overnight in Nakhon Sawan while those from the Northeast will spend the night at Nakhon Ratchasima.
Before departing their respective hometowns, the red shirts organised a series of ceremonies to pay respect to and ask for the blessing of deities revered in their towns.
Colourful departure ceremonies were held in Chiang Mai. Lampang, Udon Thani and Ubon Ratchathani.
