“We must now step back from the edge of the slippery slope that can easily slide to chaos,” the prime minister urged. He said that attempts to find common ground between the government and opposition must move from the streets to parliament, where Prayuth’s supporters have a majority.

But the PM’s gesture did little to appease protesters, as thousands again marched outside his residence in violation of a ban on political gatherings of more than five people.

The demonstrators have also written a mock resignation letter, which they dispatched to a government official in the building.

“Our fight isn’t over as long as he doesn’t resign. If within three days he doesn’t resign, he will face the people again,” protest leader Patsaravalee ‘Mind’ Tanakitvibulpon told the crowd.

The protesters accuse Prayuth of rigging last year’s election and are calling for a new, fair vote. The student-led demonstrations are also targeting the country’s monarchy and want the law banning criticism of King Maha Vajiralongkorn to be scrapped, a reduction of spending by the royal family, and limitations on the king’s powers to control finances and military units.
