Anti-government protesters plan to stage protests in Bangkok on Tuesday, November 24, and Wednesday, November 25. On Tuesday, anti-government protesters will rally at the Chinese Embassy from 17:00 (local time). On Wednesday, participants will gather at the Crown Property Bureau in the capital, although the exact timings of the event have not been announced. Other smaller protests are also possible around the capital and counter-protests cannot be ruled out. The Prime Minister warned on Thursday, November 19, that harsher police tactics would be deployed towards demonstrators meaning that clashes between protesters and security forces are likely.

Further associated demonstrations should be anticipated in the capital over the near term. A heightened security presence is expected in the vicinity of all demonstrations.


Public opposition has grown against Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha over government spending, the dissolution of an opposition party, and many other factors. Activists have also called for reforms to the powers of the monarchy. Protests on an increasing scale have been held in Bangkok and other locations across Thailand in recent months. Counter protests have also been held, particularly in support of the monarchy.


Those in Bangkok are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid protests or demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
