Anti-Junta Demonstration Sprout Up in Chiang Mai for Calling for Early Election

The demonstrators also issued a statement, calling for the restoration of free expressions and freedom which they said have been suppressed by the junta.

CHIANG MAI – About 100 students, academics and members of the public rallied in front of Chiang Mai University today (Wednesday) calling for an early election.

The demonstrators also issued a statement, calling for the restoration of free expressions and freedom which they said have been suppressed by the junta.

They also demanded the government to earnestly tackle corruption, particularly among its people.

Uniformed and plainclothes policemen were deployed at the scene of the demonstration to maintain order and checkpoints were set up on the main road leading to the university.

However, the police did not make any move to arrest or interfere with the demonstrators who dispersed after about 45 minutes of gathering.
