This 11 January 2020 video says about itself:
Thousands of anti-government protestors in Thailand gathered in a Bangkok park in the biggest political demonstration in many years. Organisers said 10,000 people registered to join the protest called ‘Run Against Dictatorship’ which saw participants in anti-government T-shirts jog around a short course, just after dawn on Sunday.
Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
In 2014, former General Prayut Chan-o-cha came to power via a coup d’etat. He was elected Prime Minister in elections last year, but critics say that those elections were unfair and chaotic. The poor economic situation further contributes to the dissatisfaction in the country.
Groups of people also took to the streets outside the capital for similar running competitions. The reason for the large-scale protest is the possible dissolution of a relatively new progressive political party.
STUDENTS in Thailand rallied in the streets today in the biggest mobilisation of young people the country has seen for decades. Demonstrations kicked off on Saturday after a court ruling earlier in the week dissolved the opposition party, Future Forward, as well as barring its leaders from holding political office for 10 years: here.
