However, the main anti-military protests are expected to take place in Bangkok instead of the provinces. The protesters have chosen the square near the Victory Monument in the historic area of the city. It is the place where few opponents of the military junta gathered in recent days. According to the main directorate of the National Police of Thailand, May 29, over a thousand of servicemen and police officers have been deployed near the Victory Monument to prevent the rally. All roads around it have been temporarily blocked.Deputy Head of the national police Somyot Poompanmoung told journalists that law enforcement forces were able to send any number of officers to any location in Bangkok where rallies would be planned. The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) that assumed all power in the country after the military coup has warned the protesters against further rallies. NCPO has warned that they reserve the right to use tear gas to disperse unauthorized demonstrations. “It is vital to understand that the situation in the country cannot be called normal. Strict measures are being taken to preserve peace and order. Let me point out that all political gatherings involving over five people are currently banned,” Army Deputy Spokesman Winthai Suvaree stated.
May 22, it was announced that all power was assumed by the Peacekeeping command that ousted the interim government of Thailand. The Constitution has been suspended by the military. One of the first orders of the military authorities was the ban on free weapons-bearing, and curfew has been introduced.
The current coup was preceded by protests continuing for more than six months. During this period, dozens of people were killed and hundreds were injured.
