Protests in Thailand against “dictatorship”

Thousands have joined the “Run Against Dictatorship” in the Thai capital, with some protesters showing the three-finger salute made popular by the dystopian trilogy “The Hunger Games”.

Protesters gathered at a public park for an anti-government run early on Sunday, with Thai billionaire and opposition leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit leading the event.

Organizers said over 10,000 people registered to join the “Run Against Dictatorship”, marking what appeared to be the biggest anti-government protest since the 2014 military coup, which saw the current prime minister and then-army chief, Prayut Chan-ocha, seize power.
