THAILAND. Bangkok. Protest leaders from over 30 pro-democracy groups will organize another mass rally on 14 Oct. at Democracy Monument in Bangkok to echo their three demands, according to Khana Ratsadon’s (People’s Party) press conference at the Royal Plaza on 8 Oct.

Their three demands are that Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and his team must resign, that the parliament must immediately hold a parliamentary session to pass the people’s amendments to the constitution, and that the monarchy must be reformed and put under the constitution.

While anticipating over 100,000 people joining from across the nation, they said they plan to protest overnight to put more pressure on the government.

Anon Nampa, a human right lawyer and one of the key protesters, said the protest on 14 Oct. will be called “The Day that People Will Lead.” Nampa assured that the protest will be peaceful and the organizers have already notified and consulted with the police.

At the most recent rally on 19 Sept., the organizers said around 200,000 people joined. Nampa believes the number would not be less than that.

“I anticipate that the crowd wouldn’t be less than 19 Sept., or larger,” Nampa said. “For marching, we haven’t set that yet, it depends on the situation. We’re aiming to pressure Prayut and the parliament.”

Nampa also said that there will be labor, school, and university strikes on that day. He said over 30 organizations — including over 20 groups from the Northeast, and high school student rights groups — have already confirmed their participation.
