Thai authorities imposed emergency measures banning gatherings of more than four people last Thursday amid growing protests against the government and monarchy but protests have only grown despite a crackdown in which dozens have been detained. Al Jazeera reports that Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha’s cabinet agreed to an emergency session of parliament next week because of the crisis, but he has said he will not quit – as the protesters have demanded along with changes to the constitution and a reduction in the powers of the monarchy. The government on Tuesday ordered the suspension of Voice TV, an online broadcaster critical of the government, a move criticized by Human Rights Watch and the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand among others.
