Thailand: Protesters take to Bangkok streets despite warning

Tens of thousands of Thai protesters have been out on the streets for a fourth day, despite police shutting down major roads and public transport in the capital.
A ban on public gatherings and a crackdown on Friday failed to stop protesters, who are demanding new elections and reforms to the monarchy.

    Big news in Thailand, this is a very Common situation in democracy country once Thailand opposition party ,(A NAKOT MAI) been lost in 5 consecutive minor elections. The secret bullet for Thai opposition parties are  hiring young student leaders in universities to gather with RED SHIRT and ORANCE FLAG gangs to work on street performing an illegal protest to pull down the prime minister who elected by majority in parliament members and very well successfully won over  the covid-19 pandemic. (The opposition parties hate this news) The protest is a dirty politician tactic. This protest was formed up before pandemic occurring after A-NA-KOT MAI party,( the ORANGE POLITIC party) found guilty on receiving donation over 10 million THB from ex party leader MR. TANA-THORN. This made politic party dissolved.

    The western media's will be learning more on this dirty tactic phenomenon.

    this Illegal protest will not be supported by majority of thai people.(69,000,000 people)

    [[[ The ex A NA-KOT MAI party was elected by 6,265,950 votes (12.23%) out of 51,239,638 voters (100%)and he calls his voters gather on street to protest.]]] This is same as old dirty politician tactic around the world.
    The fact Message ftom majority of Thai people.

    I am a Filipino and I just want to know why the Thais want the monarchy to step down. It happened to us in EDSA in 1986 and we regretted it because the Marcos regime was later realized to be much much better than those who grabbed power. I could only hope for the best for our good neighbor Thailand.
