Thailand Protests – level 2

25-11-2020 15:00

People in Thailand protested against the government. The movement started five months ago, and they wanted to change the constitution.

They also wanted the prime minister to leave his job. The Thai prime minister got to power in 2014 with the help of military.

During the protests, police fired at people, and they injured at least 50 of them. Police also used tear gas and water cannons, and protesters used big pool ducks to protect against the water cannons. The yellow ducks became a symbol of the protests.

Last week, thousands of people gathered in Bangkok. They protested against police violence. They met outside the police headquarters and they tried to damage the building.

Difficult words: movement (a group of people who want to make some changes in society), constitution (the basic rules of a country), headquarters (the main office of a company or organization).
