Hundreds of students gathered at Kasetsart University and Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok on Monday to protest against the Prayut government and show support for the dissolved Future Forward Party.
Holding placards and banners, at least 500 students at each respective university called on the government to step down and for the release of a student who was arrested by police for violating the country’s Computer Crimes Act.
Many students also expressed their support for the defunct Future Forward Party which was dissolved by the Constitutional Court on Friday in a decision the students say was politically motivated.
The students took turn making speeches and singing songs including “Do you hear the people sing?” from the popular musical Les Misérables.
A smaller protest was also held on Monday at Silapakorn University.
It is the second time in three days that university students have gathered in defiance of the coalition government.
On Saturday, at least 800 students showed up at Thammasat University to protest the Constitutional Court decision.
The student unions at Mahidol University, Burapha University, and Srinakharinwirot University told Thai Enquirer that they were also planning further protests in the next two days on their respective campuses.
