Thailand: Anti-government protest in Bangkok draws massive crowd

DW, 19 Sep 2020
Thousands of pro-democracy protesters are rallying in the streets of Thailand's capital Bangkok to demand democratic reforms. The student-led demonstrations are calling for the prime minister's resignation and changes in tough laws against criticizing the monarchy. Organizers say tens of thousands have turned out.

Authorities have warned against holding demonstrations amid fears that the coronavirus could spread rapidly among participants.
