MBtv: Thailand protests – a look back at the movement

Months of pro-democracy protests have rocked Thailand. Tens of thousands have taken to the streets in an unprecedented student-led protest movement. They are calling for the resignation of the Prime Minister, a rewrite of the Constitution and reforms to the Monarchy. Over 20 leaders have now been charged under a draconian royal defamation law that could see them imprisoned for up to 15 years if convicted. But not all Thais agree with the anti-royalist sentiment, thousands have also gathered to show their support for the ultra-wealthy monarch.
