Protesters March from Bangkok's Royal Palace to Parliament

Protesters marched from the Royal Palace to Parliament in Bangkok around 10:00 am this morning. They carried banners and many wore headbands. At first I assumed the protest was about democracy. As some signs related to violence against women, I left the scene a bit confused.

However, there was a small group of pro-democracy protestors gathered to one side of the palace grounds (shown in the photo and video clip). They were interviewed by Thai television. One man held a cardboard cut-out of a Thai general, another woman waved her hands in the air.
