Student activists have called for a rally in Bangkok on Saturday, July 18, to protest against the alleged mishandling of the economy during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Participants reportedly plan to gather at the Democracy Monument at 17:00 (local time). Police authorities have stated that the rally has not been authorized and that there is a strict prohibition on gatherings due to COVID-19.
A heightened security presence and localized transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of the protest site.
Individuals in Bangkok are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid any protest or demonstration as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
