A group of 39 activists who took part in a rally in central Bangkok in late January to demand that elections be held were charged this week for breaching the Public Assembly Act. All the protestors are facing up to 6 months in jail for having a demonstration too close to a Royal Palace. A subsequent silent protest by 4 activists against these politically motivated charges, has now led them to also be charged under the Public Assembly Act. In another case of political repression, Chanoknan Ruamsap, has fled Thailand as she was about to be charged with Lese Majeste, for sharing a BBC article in 2016.
