Thai Labour and human rights activists continue to defy military junta

Protests against the military coup in Thailand continue to be held in the country despite ongoing repression by the military. The military is now starting to crack down on the activists who have taken the lead in organising the most recent protests. Workers are also starting to push back against the junta. In another worrying development, the military junta has started to name people under the draconian Article 12 (Lese Majeste law) which carries penalties of up to 15 years in jail. Solidarity protests continue around the world. Click here for photos and report backs.
