Thai Police Crack Down on Protesters, PM Refuses to Resign
Posted on 2020-10-17 14:21:04
Riot police in Thailand have cracked down on thousands of student-led
protesters who rallied in the capital in defiance of a strict state of
emergency, while the prime minister rejected calls for his resignation.

The protesters gathered in torrential monsoon rains to push their demands,
including that Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha leave office, the
constitution be amended and the nation's monarchy undergo reform.

It was the second day they defied an order not to gather, imposed after some
demonstrators heckled a royal motorcade, an unprecedented development in
Thailand, where the monarchy is normally held in reverence.

Police used water cannons and charged at the crowd, scattering protesters,
onlookers and reporters.
