Future Forward party leader Thanathorn organizes largest government protest since 2014 coup in Bangkok

A large number of people rallied on Saturday in central Bangkok for the biggest protest since before the 2014 coup, as Future Forward Party leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit declared it was “just the beginning” of a movement against anti-democratic forces.

Mr. Thanathorn called the protest on Friday after moves to ban his party, which has emerged as the most vocal challenger to the government of former military ruler Prayut Chan-o-cha.

“Today is a show of strength so that in the future others may join us,” Mr Thanathorn told the crowd on the skywalk linking the National Stadium and Siam BTS stations. “We’re just here today as a test run. The real thing is next month.”
