Prayut has to stop his LIES over the Pro-democracy Protests! #StopDisinformation!

On 19 November 2020, Thailand's Prime Minister, Prayut Chan-o-cha issued a statement with regards to the recent pro-democracy protests, which took place on 17 and 18 November 2020. In his statements, Prayut lies once again! He claims that Thailand has acted in accordance with international standards and threatens to enhance security measures "by enforcing all pertaining laws against protestors who violate the law or infringe upon the rights and freedoms of other citizens.. This will include prosecutions in accordance with the country's judicial system, which are in accordance with international standards and practices."

However, Manushya Foundation urges the Prime Minister to stop using disinformation to fool the Thai population and the international community. By using water cannons and tear gas on unarmed and peaceful protesters, on 17 November 2020, how is Police brutality promoting compromise and respecting international standards as claimed by Prayut in his statement? NO, Thailand is clearly violating its international human rights obligations under the UN Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Watch our video above to learn the truth and see how the Thai military-backed government is infringing on its UN human rights obligations.
