Global News published this video item, entitled “Thai protesters march to palace to demand royal reforms, blasted with water cannon” – below is their description.
WARNING: Video contains violent content that may not be suitable for all viewers. Discretion is advised. Despite a burst of water cannon and a police blockade, thousands of Thai protesters marched to the Grand Palace in Bangkok on Sunday to demand curbs to King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s powers and the removal of the government. Police used the water cannon for only the second time in months of largely peaceful protests to demand greater democracy and the departure of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, a former junta leader. The Royal Palace was not available for comment. It has not commented since the start of the protests. But the king said a week ago that the protesters were still loved and that Thailand was a land of compromise, as he greeted thousands of well-wishers near the very spot that the demonstrators reached on Sunday. Police spokesman Kissana Phathanacharoen said water cannon had been fired only as a warning. The Bangkok authority’s emergency unit said one police officer and four protesters were hurt during the brief confrontation outside the palace, where police had set a barricade of buses and barbed wire. The protesters brought boxes stuffed with letters for the king and left them near the palace with police agreement. The protesters seek to put the king more clearly under the constitution, reversing changes he made shortly after taking the throne and moves he made to take personal control of the palace fortune and some army units.
