Thailand Declares State Of Severe Emergency

After seeing months of pro-democracy protests, the Thai government announced an emergency decree that bans gatherings of more than five people, and the publication of news and information that "incites fear among the public". We speak to Andrew MacGregor Marshall, author of “A Kingdom in Crisis: Thailand’s Struggle for Democracy in the 21st Century", for his insights on the ongoing unrest.
