More than 1,000 people, including school and college students, gathered at Naresuan University in Phitsanulok province on Friday (July 31) to protest against the government.

 

The protest leaders made speeches criticising the failures of the current government in political, social and economic matters, while the others held up signs with messages in their support.

 

They also slammed the "corrupted justice system" in Thailand, citing the case of Vorayuth "Boss" Yoovidhya, scion of a billionaire family, who was cleared of all charges in an alleged fatal hit-and-run case.

 

The leaders also raised the issue of the disappearance of Wanchalearm Satsaksit, 37, a pro-democracy activist who went missing from his apartment in Phnom Penh. There has been no progress in the search for the activist.

 

They switched on flashlights as a symbol to depose the premier and issued three demands: dissolution of Parliament, rewriting the Constitution and stop using government power to intimidate the public.

 

Police officers were sent to secure the event but it ended without violence around 8pm when the protesters began to disperse.

One would have to conclude they make some very good points....

 

Any meaningful change without bloodshed and mass upheaval I think not....unfortunately 

 

It's now a matter of how much joe public want their country back and what they are willing to give for it...

I think the students have reached breaking point... with no future in their sights they have no opposition party to vote for or speak on their behalf.. so the streets is all that's left as an option for them.

Imagine the response was 'Vote us out then, as and when we have another election that is either not delayed for 10 years for either Covid, state of emergency decrees or the existence of other parties to vote for'
