Dear Friend,

In these times of COVID-19, climate chaos and elections, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. If everyone who visits our website gave just $8, we could cover our operating costs for 2021. Really—that’s all it would take. And today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Stay safe, wear a mask and thank you so much.
-Amy Goodman

Thai Protesters Ask Germany to Probe King’s Activity as Protests Show No Sign of Slowing Down

HeadlineOct 27, 2020

In Thailand, protests are continuing, demanding the resignation of the prime minister, who was installed after a 2014 coup, as well as reforms to the constitution and the monarchy. Thousands marched on the German Embassy in Bangkok Monday, asking for an investigation into the king’s activities during his frequent stays in Germany. Protesters say they will take to the streets as long as needed.

Bow: “I don’t want to give up yet. I want it to end in our generation. If I give up, I wouldn’t be here. But I have joined the protest, and I will keep coming because I want change.”
