Thousands Protest in Bangkok Against Ban on Opposition Party

Thousands of supporters of Thailand’s opposition Future Forward Party (FWP) demonstrated in the streets of Bangkok on December 14, after the country’s election commission voted to ask the Constitutional Court to disband the party.

FWP leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit said that the protest was “just the beginning” of a movement against the government of prime minister and former military junta leader Prayut Chan-o-cha.

“We’re just here today as a test run. Prayut, don’t be afraid yet”, Thanathorn said, according to local reporting. “The real thing is next month.” Credit: @Cliffdweller247 via Storyful
