12 political rallies held today in 10 provinces, one to be held in the US tonight

Two political rallies were held in Bangkok on Saturday evening and nine in other provinces, the Free Youth pro-democracy group updated via its social media.

The protests in Bangkok were held at Yaek King Kaeo and in front of the Mall Bangkapi department store. Other protests on Saturday were in Phichit, Chainat, Ayutthaya, Chonburi, Rayong, Buriram, Roi Et, Bueng Kan and Nakhon Si Thammarat provinces.
The group also broke new ground by announcing a rally at Washington Square Park in the US at noon (US time).
Earlier, pro-democracy activist Jatupat “Pai Dao Din” Boonpatararaksa said that the protesters gathered in front of Bangkok Remand Prison would not move, as they are waiting for Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha's answer to their demand for his resignation.
Pro-democracy protesters have gathered in front of the prison since Friday afternoon, urging the authorities to release protest leaders who had been arrested and held at the prison.
