Thread: I have collected tweets of protest images from across Thailand going on in parallel with the major protests in Bangkok. (It’s not a complete list. Pretty sure some are missing.) #ม็อบ18ตุลา #WhatsHappeningInThailand

Protesters’ demands remain:
1. Prayut get out
2. Draft a new constitution
3. Reform the monarchy to be truly under the constitution

Everyone, get ready! (To gather at any mass transit at 3pm)

Will BTS & MRT suspend service again today? #ม็อบ18ตุลา #WhatsHappeninglnThailand
Bangkok metro MRT does not disappoint. It dutifully suspends service at key stations—basically to reduce transportation access for protesters. #bootlicker #ม็อบ18ตุลา #WhatsHappeninglnThailand
Expect @BTS_SkyTrain to announce closure too, in 5.... 4..... 3.... 2.... 1....

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 thairath.co.th/news/politic/1…
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
