Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in downtown Bangkok calling for the resignation of Thailand’s prime minister Prayut Chan-o-cha on October 15, the Bangkok Post reported.
This comes a day after Bangkok police issued an emergency decree banning gatherings of more than five people, local media reported.
This footage was shared by a protester and shows a police truck retreating as protesters chant and move forward.
According to the Bangkok Post, the protest movement aims to remove Gen Prayut, who took power in a 2014 coup that was meant to end a decade of violence between supporters and opponents of the country’s establishment.
Those marching on the streets also want a new constitution and have called for reform of the monarchy, the Post said Credit: @bebeam03 via Storyful
