While pro-democracy protesters have been gathering nationwide over the past week, especially in their cat-and-mouse “pop up” protests around the capital, calling on an end to the military-run government and pushing the Thai PM to resign, royal supporters gathered at Chon Buri’s Banglamung District Office to show their support for Thailand and the Thai Monarchy.
They say they welcome discussion from the protesters, but not “insults against our most sacred institution”.
The royalists were dressed in yellow, a colour that symbolises the Thai Monarchy. They presented a letter to the district chief to be passed along to the governor expressing their support for the highest Thai Institution and their disapproval of insults spread online by pro-democracy protesters.
“Due to the current protest situation in Bangkok, Banglamung and other areas in Thailand, there are many photos, videos and comments that have insulted our most sacred institution which have gone viral in social media.
We appreciate our beloved monarchy. We must protect our monarchy.”
