Two hundred protesters march in Bangkok,Thailand

Two hundred pro-democracy protesters marched peacefully in Bangkok on Saturday, in a move that defies the junta ban on political gatherings.

 

Students of the New Democracy Movement organized the rally that marks the the anniversary of the 2006 Royal Thai Army staging a coup d’état against the elected caretaker government of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

 

Protesters on Saturday marched from from Thammasat University to the Democracy Monument in the capital where they entered the quarters despite barricades and police presence.

 

Students and activists raised a banner that read, “return power to the people” while giving speeches on democracy.

 

Activists said that they did not have any problems with police officers while entering the site in the capital.
