    Hundreds of protesters returned to the streets of the Thai capital Bangkok on June 24, 2021, calling for Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha to step down. The rally was organised to commemorate the 89th anniversary of the Siamese Revolution, which ended absolute monarchy in Thailand. Bangkok was rocked by anti-government protests in 2020, but later lost steam following the coronavirus outbreak in the country and a police crackdown on demonstrators.
