PHUKET: More than 1,000 student protesters departed from Phuket Provincial Police Station this afternoon satisfied with the results of their march, which had arrived at the island’s police headquarters to ask officers to join their campaign to remove Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra from office.

“We would like all police officers to be working for the people of Thailand, not the government,” Chinnawat Buree, one of the leaders of the student protesters, said.

The protesters comprised students from a variety of educational institutions, including the island’s renowned Phuket Rajabhat University, Technical College, Satree Phuket School and Phuket Wittayalai School.
