Thai protesters bang pots to ‘banish dictators’
Pro-democracy Ratsadon protesters gathered on Bangkok’s Pathumwan Skywalk today for a demonstration dubbed “hitting pots to banish dictators”.
The demonstration echoed nightly protests in Myanmar against the coup in Thailand’s neighbouring country.
The Pathumwan protesters also handed out stickers to passers-by reading “we do not want Article 112”, referring to the lese majeste law. Police have charged dozens of people with lese majeste over their participation in pro-democracy protests in the past few months.
