A bid to prevent the latest anti-government protest failed yesterday after Mahasarakham University students defied their dean.

University campuses are exempt from the emergency decree’s ban on gatherings, but the dean had warned that the rally risked spreading Covid-19 and asked the students to cancel the protest.

However, the protest leaders confirmed that they would continue, and joked that the theme of the rally had been changed to “anti-dean and anti-government”.

Political protests have broken out around the country following the rally on July 18 at Bangkok’s Democracy Monument by a group called Free Youth. The group wants Parliament to be dissolved, the Constitution to be made more democratic, and the government to lift its threats against the people.
