The latest situation of the protests on Tuesday 5th November 2013 is that there are now two main rally sites. These are at the Democracy Monument on Ratchadamnoen Klang Avenue and Uruphong Intersection on Rama VI Road. Obviously this is disrupting traffic in those areas (see map). This evening, teachers and students from Chulalongkorn University marched along Phaya Thai Road to the Bangkok Art and Culture Center (BACC) which is opposite MBK shopping mall. Here are the highlights of my tweets. Follow me on @RichardBarrow for the latest updates.

The student protest in front of BACC is only a temporary demonstration. The following tweets show the main rally sites which are more permanent with tents, speakers and a stage.
