Anti-Government Protests Attract Thousands Across Thailand

Thousands of people gathered on Saturday in Bangkok to demand Thai Prime Minister Gen. Prayuth Chan-o-cha “step down and dissolve the parliament” amid accusations his government’s stringent lockdown measures and “sweeping power” have compromised citizens’ democratic freedoms, local news outlet Coconuts Bangkok reported on Monday.
