Suthep Thaugsuban, leader of the prolonged anti-government movement in Thailand, has called on civil servants to go on strike on Monday.

In an address broadcast live on Sunday afternoon, former Democrat MP Suthep also asked free TV stations to stop airing government announcements.

Suthep blamed the government and police for injuries and loss of lives caused by clashes between Ramkhamhaeng University students and pro-government Red Shirts on Saturday night.

According to the latest update, the clashes have killed four and wounded 57.

On Sunday, which Suthep claimed to be the day of victory, protesters have marched in multiple processions to destinations such as the Interior Ministry, the Labor Ministry and a couple of TV stations.

They have also vowed to seize the Government House and force Yingluck to step down.
