Thai Youth Calling for a Revolution in Politics

While Thailand is no stranger to people protests, the current pro-democracy movement is significant for being driven primarily by Thai youth and university students, and for the bold calls for reforms to the monarchy, a long-time taboo topic. We discuss the motivations for political change and observations from the latest rally on September 19th with Tara Abhasakun and Wanpen Pajai, reporters with the Southeast Asia Globe.
