Event

A pro-democracy demonstration is scheduled to take place in Bangkok on Thursday, October 15. The protest is being organized by the United Front of Thammasat and Demonstration (UFTD), who have called on supporters to gather from 16:00 (local time) at the Ratchaprasong intersection where they will reportedly block the road. The Thai government has announced an emergency decree for Bangkok, including a ban on large public gatherings. The emergency measures came into effect at 04:00 (local time) on Thursday, and reports suggest that several activists planning to demonstrate have been arrested.

Localized travel disruptions should be anticipated in the vicinity of the rally if it goes ahead and clashes between protesters and security forces cannot be ruled out.  

Advice

Individuals in Bangkok are advised to closely monitor the situation, avoid all large public gatherings, prepare for disruptions to transportation and business in areas affected by the demonstration, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
