Volunteer will join officials from the Army Science Department to remove graffiti, daubed on walls of public and private property, by anti-establishment protesters.

Army deputy spokesperson, Colonel Sirichan Ngathong, said today that Army Commander-in-Chief General Narongphan Chitkaewtae has instructed the Army Science Department to find an effective way of erasing the graffiti, which has become a public eyesore.

The officials were mobilized to do the cleaning on Ratchadapisek Road after the protest ended late on Wednesday night. The work will resume tomorrow, with the help of volunteers.

The writing or spray-painting of hate messages on walls or road surfaces has become a common practice among the protesters, to vent their anger and frustration.

The Ratsadon group vowed to hold protests for five consecutive days, after the protest at the Siam Commercial Bank head office on Wednesday. A protest is scheduled for Friday, at the Lat Phrao intersection starting at 4pm, to oppose any possibility of a military coup.
