Thailand's Pro-democracy Demonstrators Are Warned For Possibility Of Coup

The protest held in Thailand by pro-democracy demonstrators core demands for Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha and his government to step down. They aren't feared of any arrest warrants and the possibility of violent attacks holds another rally, poking fun at their critics and warning of a military coup.

The protest movements want the constitution to be changed and to be more democratic, more of monarchy reformed to make it more accountable. The potential for violence was illustrated after their last rally on Wednesday wherein the protest two men were reportedly shot and critically wounded. Although the incident remains dark and its connection to the rally is still unclear. It was more of a reminder that the student protesters are vulnerable, especially because of the passions they inspire among some of their opponents. The military has declared defense of the government to be among its foremost duties. The protest leaders believe that King Maha Vajiralongkorn holds more power than is appropriate under constitutional sovereignty

According to the current scenario the Thai authorities' response this past week intensifying their legal battle against protest leaders, charging 12 of them with violating a harsh law against defaming the monarchy. The lese majeste law carries a penalty of three to 15 years’ imprisonment but it has not been used for the last three years. There is concern that if the government feels it cannot control the protests, which show little sign of abating, it may impose martial law or be ousted by the army in a coup.
