Hundreds of Thai students protested against the country's government with a rally outside the Ministry of Education in Bangkok, Thailand, today (Aug 19).
The High School youngsters are joining a growing movement of young people showing their anger at the military government who seized power with a coup in 2014.
They are angry at teachers in many schools banning them from political expressions.
A series of protests have taken place in recent months in which demonstrators - mainly university students and progressive groups - have called for greater levels of democracy and accountability in the country.
On Saturday, thousands of protesters converged on the Democracy Monument in the capital Bangkok in the largest rally since 2014.
Anger has been growing since March 2019 when controversial elections returned career soldier General Prayut Chan-o-cha to power and saw the progressive Future Forward Party disbanded amid claims that opposition parties were being silenced.
A number of opposition leaders have been arrested in recent months though police so far shown restraint and have avoided any violent crackdowns on the gatherings.
