Thais from a group named UDD Japan gathered in front of a hotel where Thai PM Prayut Chan-o-cha was staying to protest. The group demanded that the PM resign and release the young political activists out of jail.

PM Prayut is in Japan to join the 27th International Conference on the Future of Asia or Nikkei Forum, held until the end of today. Yesterday, around 3 pm, the official Facebook page of the UDD Japan group posted a video when the group members were protesting in front of the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo. The protestors were shouting in both Thai and Japanese to call for PM Prayut’s resignation.

“Prayut Get Out!”… “Dictatorship shall fall, democracy shall prosper”.

The protestors were waving around placards saying… “No Coup” and “Democracy must come from the whole population”.

The group also asked the Thai government to release different young political activists arrested because they expressed their political opinions and mentioned the Thai royal family. The protestors said those teenagers did not do anything wrong, claiming the young activists were just “telling the truth that the state couldn’t admit”.

They also said that Thailand should look to a developed country like Japan as a role model and stop destroying Thailand’s children’s futures.
