Anti-government protest leader Suthep Thaugsuban declared last night that demonstrators will "blow the final whistle" on Monday to seize power from the Yingluck Shinawatra administration. 

Mr Suthep announced at the government complex, the main rally site, that he would not prolong the protest any longer but would make it clear on Monday that demonstrators will "win or lose".

"It will be the final battle. It will be do or die for us. If we fail [to overthrow the government], I will give up and turn myself in to police," he told demonstrators.
