Amidst protests in Thailand, the Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha announces a lift on the state of emergency specifically in Bangkok. For over one week now, anti-government protests led by students of Thailand have been occurring causing an uproar.
The protesters demand a reform of the monarchy system and a new constitution. They are giving the Prime Minister three days to resign from his position or there will be more demonstrations in the future.
In Thailand, at the moment there is a ban on large groups due to COVID-19, yet protestors are not deterred. Prime Minister Prayut has no signs of resigning.
