October 10, 2008 This warden message is being issued to alert U.S. Citizens traveling to and residing in Thailand that media reports indicate the People's Alliance for Democracy (PAD) leaders have called for a mass rally at Police Headquarters on Monday morning, October 13, 2008. Police Headquarters is located on Rama I road, which is the same road that Siam Paragon, Central World, and other large shopping areas are located. We ask Americans to exercise caution if you are going to be in this vicinity or in the area of any demonstrations. We wish to remind American citizens that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. American citizens are therefore urged to avoid the areas of demonstrations if possible, and to exercise caution if within the vicinity of any demonstrations. For the latest security information, Americans living and traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department's Bureau of Consular Affairs Internet web site at http://travel.state.gov, where the current Worldwide Caution, Travel Alerts, Travel Warnings, and health-information resources can be found.
