Thailand’s Youth are Challenging the Government in the Biggest Push for Democracy Yet

The streets of Bangkok have become the site of some of the biggest anti-government protests in years, with tens of thousands of protesters massing to demand an end to military-backed rule and a shift to a true democracy.

It’s the latest round of pro-democracy protests since the military seized control in a 2014 coup, but this time is different—the protesters are young, their movement is popular, and they’re not afraid to cross some of the country’s most taboo topics—criticizing the monarchy directly.

VICE News went inside the protest movement to meet those leading the charge, and risking up to 15 years in jail in the process.
