Thai protesters rally in Bangkok defying state of emergency

Hundreds of protesters gathered on Thursday in the Thai capital, Bangkok, calling for police to free arrested activists, defying emergency measures imposed earlier to quell a pro-democracy movement.

Thailand imposed “serious” emergency measures banning gatherings of more than five people in a bid to stop youth-led demonstrations that have been rocking the country since mid-July.

    Al Jazeera, you would do well to clarify that Pavin Chachavalpongpun is an Anti-Monarchist. He's not an impartial commentator, in fact he is one of those pushing the agenda and hijacking the sudent's protests to make it appear as if it's against the Monarchy when in reality it's mostly against the Junta leader Prayuth and his abuse of Lese Majeste laws to silence his critics by inappropriately invoking the Royal Institution.
