Dozens of people demonstrated for the monarchy in the Thai capital this Sunday morning in front of the Monument to Democracy in Bangkok, hours before an anti-government protest scheduled for the same day begins.
“You can propose what you want. We can protest against anything. But we have no right to touch the monarchy,” said one of the leaders of the protest.
Most of the protesters have come with Thai flags and portraits of the kings to counter the protest, scheduled for the same Sunday, called by a group of students trying to reform the constitution in order to curtail the powers of the monarchy.
The groups Juventud Libre and Gente Libre are calling for the dissolution of parliament, a new Magna Carta and the end of their acts of repression against critics and dissidents in the Southeast Asian country.
