Thai protesters called for new protests on Sunday (25) after the prime minister refused to resign, as requested by the movement that shakes the kingdom to demand more democracy and a reform of the monarchy.

A new demonstration in Bangkok is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, organizers announced.

On Monday, protesters plan to march towards the German embassy, ​​a new sign of defiance to the king, Maha Vajiralongkorn, who often visits that country.

Protesters, who have been protesting since the summer, demand the resignation of the head of government, Prayut Chan-O-Cha, in power since the 2014 coup and legitimized by controversial elections last year.

“I will not resign,” said the prime minister on Saturday night, ignoring the three-day ultimatum set by pro-democracy activists.
