Candle lighting at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre

Over 1,000 peace-seekers gathered at Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre on Friday and lit candles, in the symbolic move to block the "Bangkok shutdown".

The activity was kicked off at 6pm.

It was held in tandem with activities at other locations, to mobilise supports from those who oppose the shutdown. They fear that this could lead to violence.
