Anti-government protesters in Thailand are planning to expand their set of demands after generating “significant” support for a movement that’s broken long-held taboos about publicly criticizing the monarchy. Following four months of regular street protests, the youth-led groups will also take on issues like changes in the crown property laws and the recognition of same-sex marriage, according to Arnon Nampa, one of the movement’s most prominent leaders. “People may think that this movement only talks about the monarchy — at the heart of the movement is actually equality and liberty,” Arnon said in an interview. “Many protesters have fought for various issues to create a more equal society. The demand for monarchy reform really started from our fight for equality.”
