Event

Pro-democracy protesters plan to gather in Bangkok on Sunday, November 22. Participants will gather in Bangkok's Thawi Watthana district on Aksa Road at 16:00 (local time). Other smaller protests are also possible around the capital and counter-protests cannot be ruled out.

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 and clashes between security forces, protesters, and counter-protesters cannot be ruled out.

Context

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.

Advice

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.
