Dozens of Thai activists face anti-monarchy charges | DW News

DW News published this video item, entitled “Dozens of Thai activists face anti-monarchy charges | DW News” – below is their description.

The ongoing civil unrest in Thailand has not gone away, and in fact, many of the leaders of the pro-democracy demonstrations throughout 2020 are now in court facing years in prison. In Amnesty International’s big annual report on the state of human rights around the world, the entry for Thailand talks about widespread repression, and the use of enforced disappearances. This includes the case of Wanchalearm Satsaksit who disappeared while living in exile last year. He’s yet another suspected victim of the Thai authorities’ assault on dissent.
