    Stop the Thai Coup, Restore and Strengthen Democracy with Participation for All

    04 June 2014
    Declaration

    After several months of political unrest in Thailand, the military declared martial law on May 20, 2014, and then called leaders in for a supposed attempt at dialogue before seizing power in a coup d’état on May 22. General Prayuth Chan-ocha abolished the 2007 Constitution and dissolved the caretaker Government and Senate. In subsequent days, the military has summoned and detained scholars, activists, journalists and politicians, even carrying out arbitrary arrests and secret detentions, targeting people who think differently and who have campaigned for democratic and legal reforms.
