On Sunday, activists in Chiang Mai province staged a protest calling for the removal of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and his administration.
Likewise, a protest was also held in Ubon Ratchathani with the same call.
The Free Youth group led both of the peaceful demonstrations.
Protesters occupied Tha Phae Gate, a landmark in Chiang Mai, displaying various placards containing democratic calls and sporting the three-finger salute.
Police rushed to the organized rally, urging protestors to end the demonstration, citing fears of the resurgence of covid-19.
Meanwhile, a group mostly comprised of students protested in Ubon Ratchathani, staging near the City Pillar Shrine. A student among the crowd decried:
“We really want to see changes.”
According to authorities, filing charges are under consideration against the protestors who organized the Democracy Monument rally.
Samranrat station superintendent, Pol Col Itthipol Pongthorn, said:
“Three police stations will meet to discuss whether to press charges against the [protest leaders] for demonstrating in public places without a permit and/or violating the emergency decree.”
The protests conducted at Chiang Mai and Ubon Ratchathani followed the recently held Bangkok demonstrations.
The mobilization conducted in Bangkok was the first significant protest since covid-19 swept Thailand.
