Protest against Thai PM over Covid mismanagement continues
Hundreds of protesters threw paint at a line of riot police who confronted them as they tried to march on Prayuth’s home and police responded with tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse them. This is a second successive day of protest as they demand PM’s resignation for mismanaging the country’s coronavirus crisis.
Barbed wire fences and shipping containers were used to block the road. Police used tear gas, water cannon, rubber bullets to break up a similar protest on Tuesday, when thousands of demonstrators drove in a convoy of cars and motorcycles through Bangkok.
Prayuth has come under fire for a chaotic vaccination campaign and failure to quell Thailand’s worst Covid-19 wave yet, which has accounted for the bulk of the country’s more than 788,000 cases and 6,700 deaths.
Police said nine officers were injured at the Tuesday protest, one by gunshot to the leg and the others hurt by firecrackers, rocks and shrapnel from homemade bombs.
At least two police traffic boxes were set ablaze and other public property damaged, police said.
