Newspaper personnel for both the Bangkok Post and The Nation have been instructed to evacuate. It has been recently announced on both the website for the Bangkok Post as well as the website for the Nation Newspaper that their staffs have been instructed to evacuate and go home. The following is a direct quotation from the Nation’s website:

Nation Multimedia Group told its staff to leave the office at 3:15 pm following reports that angry protesters were heading to attack the office.

As has been previously noted on this website, the US Embassy Bangkok recently announced that their non-essential personnel have been evacuated and that their facilities will be closed for non-emergency matters until at least May 21, 2010.

Thai government offices in Bangkok are currently on holiday. However, this author has heard unconfirmed reports that Thai Immigration offices are still operating. That being said, this is mere anecdotal speculation as there is a great deal of confusion in the city at the time of this writing.
