Protesters in Bangkok repeat calls for constitution amendment
Thousands of young protesters took to the streets of Bangkok and repeated calls for a constitution amendment, subsequent dissolution of Parliament and an end to coups in Thailand.
The protesters, led by the so-called Free People movement in alliance with the so-called Free Youth movement, peacefully gathered on Sunday at Democracy Monument on Ratchadamnoen Avenue under police watch, reports Xinhua news agency.
The leading demostrators, majority of them university students, repeatedly called for the government to put forward constitution amendment.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has been pressed by the protesters to dissolve parliament, which will be automatically followed by a general election of MPs, after the sought-after constitution amendment is completed.
In recent days, Thai pro-democracy activists have been defying a government ban on public gatherings amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic to protest against the Prime Minister who seized power in a coup in 2014.
