A reported 10,000 supporters of a Thai opposition party which could be banned by authorities have taken to the streets in the country’s biggest protest since a 2014 military coup.
Speaking to activists in the capital Bangkok, the 41-year-old billionaire leader of Future Forward, Thanathorn Juangroongruangkrit, urged people to stand up against the government and fight for democracy.
He told them “this is just the beginning” and “I think it shows that people will not tolerate dictatorship anymore”.
Many demonstrators gave the three-finger salute of resistance, a symbol taken from the Hollywood film The Hunger Games.
Legal moves to dissolve the party have angered supporters who believe there is a conspiracy against it.
