Thai Rath reports in great detail on #ม็อบ17ตุลา protests yesterday. There were 4 major protest sites in BKK (Lad Phrao, Udomsuk/Bangna, Wong Wian Yai, Ramkhamhaeng) + at a number of universities and schools across the country. #WhatsHappeninglnThailand…
Several people have observed and commented that mainstream #ThaiMedia reports on the current youth-led protests have become more professional and straightforward (as opposed to with typical slant, bias, laziness, or self-censorship like before). #WhatsHappeninglnThailand
Apparently @BangkokPostNews, once a newspaper of record in the English language for Thailand, is not among the mainstream media appreciated for the coverage of ongoing protests. (To think Thai Rath is now doing a better job than the Bangkok Post. 😣) #WhatsHappeninglnThailand

Top trending hashtags on Thai Twitter tonight are many #save protest figures who have been arrested or have arrest warrants.

Thai authorities have stepped up arrests of pro-democracy activists basically for protesting and demanding change. #ม็อบ17ตุลา #WhatsHappeningInThailand
No. 1 hashtag right now is #Saveหมอทศพร about a doctor who advised protesters on what to do if they were sprayed with water (with irritants) and tear gas. (He also gave the police an earful.) He was arrested today. #ม็อบ17ตุลา #WhatsHappeninglnThailand
Hundreds of Thai physicians issued a statement against use of water cannons against protesters. They call for hospitals to be a safe zone, healthcare professionals to be protected to provide service fairly to all & govt to open space for different views. #WhatsHappeninglnThailand

No, MRT. You did not ask for our “cooperation” for suspending your service today. You caused inconvenience for protesters and non-protesters alike. You served dictatorship instead.

No apology accepted. You should be ashamed of yourself! #ม็อบ17ตุลา #WhatsHappeninglnThailand
And same to you, BTS. You carried countless protesters of all colors and stripes in the past. Are you a true public service? WHOM do you really serve? The public or the dictators?

Shame on you! #ม็อบ17ตุลา #WhatsHappeninglnThailand

Protesters regrouped at Lat Phrao intersection after briefly retreating amid reports of water canons, police. They’re now leaving the protest site. Organisers previously announced the gathering will end at 8pm today #ม็อบ17ตุลา #WhatsHappeningInThailand ImageImage
Demonstration at Lat Phrao intersection is officially over. Protesters are leaving the area and traffic has begun to resume slowly. No clash reported so far #ม็อบ17ตุลา #WhatsHappeningInThailand
Today’s demonstration is leaderless as most leaders have been arrested. Yet protesters took turn giving short speeches, shout short phrases reflecting on different issues for others to repeat.

“Prayut, get out!”
“Dictators’ servants!”
“Where is #Wanchalearm?”
