THE Feminist Liberation Group and their allies staged a “car mob” procession from Silom road to Democracy Monument which they draped with a large rainbow cloth and then called for constitutional amendments and for Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to step down, Matihon and Thai Rath newspapers said.
The protesters headed for the Democracy Monument from Silom road at 4 p.m. and once there, after covering the monument with the large rainbow cloth, their leaders gave speeches voicing their demands .
There were also other activities during this demonstration with participants waving rainbow flags and many of them wearing flashy clothes and masks.
At 5.42 p.m. members of the Thalu Gas group walked to the front of the stage waving the rainbow flags with one of them saying, ““I encourage you to go through the gas. I wade through it everyday at Din Daeng. I do it for you
“You kicked my brothers, beat them up, burnt our backs with cigarettes. Are you satisfied? Why are you doing this? Why do you round us up? Are you proud? Once rounded up we urge you not to kick us some more. Help us by being our eyes and ears.”
Meanwhile wealthy protester Mr. Thanat Thanakitamnuay, or Hiso Luknut, who was blinded in one eye during a recent protest, also showed up and said, “Thalu Gas, my brothers.”
