Thai protesters confront royals in Bangkok visit - BBC News

Pro-democracy protesters in Thailand have confronted a motorcade carrying members of the royal family as it passed through a rally in Bangkok.

The protesters, who were pushed back by ranks of police, raised the three-finger salute that has become a symbol of the protest movement.

They have called for curbs on the king's powers and for the resignation of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha.

The protests on Wednesday follow months of escalating tension in the country.

The King has a personal wealth of $30 Billion U.S dollars! That's the people of Thailand's wealth, stolen wealth indeed. Go people of Thailand hope you win, and political reforms are implemented, support from Australia.

Enough is enough: the evil government for 300 years. This mafia family has long been corrupt and slave millions of people survive on a lease than $2.00 a day. Another mass murder by the thug mafia family will happen again soon. People must aware and prepare to fight to the death. The barbarian does not know dialogue, power is in the barrel of the GUN. Do it the smart way, please. Get rid of the barbarian elites that cause the problem, and the less will surrender.
Thank you BBC for delivering truth to the whole world. We are working very hard to bring back our rights and democracy. Right now, all of the mainstream Thai media refuse to do their job and help the government to twist the truth. All of the protesters are unarmed and they are surrounded by armed police who might attack them with tear gas or weapons anytime. Please give Thailand a lot of attention. We will no longer tolerate this unfair system anymore.
Good luck Thailand for the Freedom !

Thank you very much international news agencies for making news on this matter. Now domestic news agencies are afraid to make news because they will be persecuted by their powers. Some Thai news agencies that made the news were arrested. Some live streams are still being captured during the live broadcast.

They’re in a dictatorship and the politicians are just ex Military leaders.

David Phillips
David Phillips:
There are no "parties" because the military dictator who seized control in 2014 outlawed them and anyone who goes against him usually ends up in a river with a belly full of cement and their families rotting in jails. The first thing the dictator did was threaten the media with death or jail for speaking badly against him--which is why many of these Thai reporters are being really careful of what they say.
The whole world is going crazy

The Thai King gave his pet dog an official military rank and the dog actually earns money 😂... This man is insane. The last King was not that crazy, that's why Thailand used to love their king.

I lived in thailand and i have learned that under the rule of the dictator you could have even gone silently if you don’t keep your mouth shut or questioning the monarchy but now the people has tolerance to these kind of injustice no longer.
Now the people from every corner of the country have gathered to show their righteousness of freedom.
Under the peaceful protest all of the protesters are unarmed and still the government have ordered the officers to arrest and treat them like they are prisoners when they are just normal unarmed person.
Please the rally needs the public support to succeed be the voice of us shout out for our freedom and for one less dictator will be remove from the world.

Truly, the former king signs to certify the coup d'etat for 11 times but there are many people who still respect him because of good propaganda in the past. I'm thai and I used to be the one of them. Conversely, the new king didn't have a good image since the past. so there are many thai people who like "I'm like the former king but I dont like the new king" which make it harder to remove the monarchy in thailand. Furthermore, the mass media agree with them so everything is harder. English is not my native language but I hope you still understand.😢

No one could endure any more. Tax money to spend lavishly People in a critical situation are dire. Income was not enough with expenditures, people lost their jobs, suicides due to the terrible crisis, but king take the tax money to the girls in the harem.And meddle in politics, self-governance as an arbitrary setting
Public taxes are not used to develop the country or help the poor......... !!🤐🤫😢In these economic conditions the world is dire. Do not aggravate each other. Should sympathize with people.

I lived in Bangkok during Bhumibol's rule when he was still alive. Hopefully Bangkok gets better. No country deserve a useless monarchy, but then again monarchy sucks
I worked with a family who are Thai. They have a lot of respect and admiration for the former king but don't feel as much for his son. They view him as more of a "playboy" enjoying his status rather than a monarch acting on behalf of his country. I've heard his father was well educated and did great things to help the country. It's a shame his son doesn't take the same pride in or motivation to continue Thailand's national and international identity.
This remembers me when I got stuck in the Hong Kong 🇭🇰 protests
