Piyanut Kotsan, Director of Amnesty International Thailand, enumerates the human and digital rights issues and violations occurring during the recent youth-led protests in Thailand, from the disproportionate use of laws against dissenting opinions and the increase in online harassment against young protesters. 

This episode was recorded on October 15, 2020, the day the Thai government enacted an emergency decree restricting physical gatherings as part of its response to curb the continued protests in the country. The video version of this episode will be available on October 19.
