BANGKOK, Thailand — We are live from Bangkok on Saturday, November 21, as anti-government protesters gather at the Ratchaprasong intersection in wake of the rejected draft at the Thai Parliament. On Wednesday evening, the Thai Parliament rejected a draft backed by protesters that would include changes in articles linked to the monarchy. Thailand has seen a wave of anti-government demonstrations throughout the past months, with students and other activists calling for the resignation of Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-Ocha, as well as constitutional reform, and a reform of the long-standing monarchy system in the country. Counter-protests in support of the monarchy have also been taking place.
