In February 2020, Thailand's Constitutional Court dissolved the Future Forward Party, which was the third most popular party in the country's general election a year earlier, and stripped 12 of its MPs of their parliamentary status.
In this episode, we interview Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, founder of the Future Forward Party, about why he believes his party was targeted, and the impact of the dissolution. That decision has been a contributing factor to the pro-democracy demonstrations currently sweeping across the country, and we'll also be speaking with human rights groups, as well as figures involved in the protest movement.
"Our existence in the long run would jeopardise their stronghold on power. So I think it's a distraction, it's a leverage, and it's an attempt to destroy us."
