Thousands of anti-government protesters in Thailand clashed with police this Saturday (7) as the government complained about the Kovid-19 eruption and its impact on the economy.

Hundreds of police officers with containers blocked the road near the Victory Monument in the capital, Bangkok, and marched on the government building of Prayut Chan-chai with water cannons, tear gas and rubber fire.

“Tear gas and rubber bullets were used to control the crowd. Our aim is to maintain order,” police spokesman Krishna Pattanacharon told reporters. Protesters used bombs, stones and marbles, he added.

Dozens of protesters were seen riding on motorcycles and ambulances.

“We want Prayut to resign because people have not been vaccinated,” said a 23-year-old protester who gave only his first name, Om. “We have no job and no income, so we have no choice but to protest.”

According to data from the project this Saturday “Our World in Data”, Affiliated with the University of Oxford, says only 6.1% of the Thai population has been fully vaccinated against Kovid-19. In addition, only 15.6% received a single dose of docovid-19 vaccine, so partial immunizations were given.
