Another Sunday, another 6,000 troops, no Sombat

- +

More than 6,000 soldiers and police will again be deployed at five possible Bangkok protest sites on Sunday to prevent anti-coup demonstrators from gathering, despite low turnout last week and the arrest of a key organiser. 

National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) deputy spokesman Winthai Suvaree said on Saturday that there could be serious consequences for anyone gathering to protest against the coup or failing to cooperate with authorities.

According to postings on social media, rallies will occur on Sunday with activists expected to demand the armed forces go back to their barracks and return power to civilians.
