Protesters in Thailand carry on despite police warning

BANGKOK (AP) — Thousands of mainly young Thais have gone back to the streets of Bangkok for a fifth straight day of protests demanding sweeping political change, with demonstrations also taking place at several other locations around the country. The demonstrators, who are protesting despite a state of emergency banning them from doing so, received a new warning from police that they are violating the law. The protest movement — which is calling for the prime minister’s resignation, a more democratic constitution and a reformed monarchy — began in March at universities around the country. After a lull due to the coronavirus crisis, it was revived in late July, building up strength, particularly in Bangkok.
