A LARGE group of demonstrators from the New Democracy Movement marched from Thammasat University to Democracy Monument yesterday evening, in a rally against dictatorship.
The marching demonstrators, many of them university students, shouted “Down with dictatorship, long live democracy” and “NCPO get out”. They also displayed a banner that read “Return the power to the people”. The demonstrators remained at the monument until last night. A leader at the rally, Sirivich Serithiwat, said they would disperse voluntarily after 10pm.
Protest leaders read poems and played music at the monument. They were under close watch of police and military officers, some of whom recorded the rally on cameras.
