Royalist demonstrators threaten Prachatai reporter

Description

On 10 February, a hardline pro-monarchy group known as the Citizens' Network to Protect the Monarchy staged a counter-demonstration at BTS Siam station in response to a group of activists in support of reforming the monarchy who were holding a news conference in the same area. Upon seeing a journalist from Prachatai news agency filming the rally, some of the royalist demonstrators approached the reporter and ordered him to stop filming, hinting at possible violence if he refuses to comply.
