Bangkok protesters brace for rain

Tropical storm Noul brings flooding to parts of Isan and could hit capital soon.

Pro-democracy protesters may have to defy rain this weekend, as the capital is an expected target of tropical storm Noul, which already drenched some northeastern provinces on Friday.

Rain will not stop the protests! It will encourage the protests with the cooler weather!!!

Prayut, get out is the theme of the protests!!!

From reports provided me from people that attended the protest, appears that over 200,000 were in attendance. There was a full military and police presence there complete with water and sound cannons. The protest was quite peaceful and last night, the main stream Thai media started to cover the event.

Main theme of the protest continued with, "Prayuth get out"!

The photo shown in the article was very early in to the protest...

Thailand protests: Thousands join huge rally demanding reforms

Thousands of people have protested in the Thai capital Bangkok calling for reform of the political system, including the role of the monarchy.

It was one of the biggest protests in years with at least 15,000 people, police said. "Down with feudalism, long live the people," chanted some.

There were no reports of violence.

Since July, rallies have called for the resignation of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha who took power in a 2014 coup and won disputed elections last year.

Saturday's student-led demonstration moved from the campus of Thammasat University to a park next to a grand palace used for royal ceremonies.

Demonstrators say they plan to stay overnight and march to the offices of the prime minister on Sunday morning...

More reports on the Thai TV news:

Thais in Shibuya (Tokyo), Japan joined in the protests in Japan.

Appears that all the major cities in Thailand had protests, so millions were involved in the protests.

Now we wait for the results of the protests...
