Thailand - Activists on Hunger Strike - URGENT ACTION

Amnesty International, US, June 30, 2022

Since June 2, 2022, two women have been on hunger strike calling for their right to bail. They have been detained since May 3, 2022. Authorities have started criminal proceedings against them and one other, who is on bail under house arrest, for conducting street polls. 

International human right commitments oblige the Thai government to effectively protect the human rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly and minimize pre-trial detention. The three must be released immediately, and all charges against them dropped.
