Democracy Movement in Thailand

Tuesday, 11 August 2020 - 8:30am to 9:00am

Several thousand anti-government protesters have been rallying in Thailand’s capital for the last three weeks, calling for a new constitution, new elections and an end to repressive laws.

In the last week, two leaders of the movement were arrested, resulting in ever greater resolve amongst the protest movement. The pair were charged with sedition and breaking coronavirus rules, before being released on bail.

And the demonstrations are likely to grow into an even larger movement as the economy worsens amid the coronavirus pandemic.

On todays show we speak with Lek Yimprasert, exiled Thai activist living in Finland.
