Second student protest against coup
Some 60 students protested on Monday against last week's coup e'tat that ousted Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra in the second anti-junta rally since the seizure of power.
Wearing black wristbands and black T-shirts, students defied the military's ban on any political gatherings. However the one-hour rally held inside Thammasat University was peaceful with no presence of police officials.
They held a banner reading "Council of Demented and Ridiculous Military" to mock the "the Council for Democratic Reform under Constitutional Monarchy."
The students sang songs and took turns to give speeches during the rally.
The military junta ousted the Thaksin government in a bloodless coup on September 19. Three days after the coup, some 100 protesters took part in the first rally in Bangkok against the ouster of Thaksin.
The first rally held outside Siam Paragon Department Store also ended peacefully under the watchful eye of 20 police officials.
