BANGKOK, November 18, 2022 – Today at 10:10 AM, crowd control (riot) police fired rubber bullets at civilian protesters from the group Ratsadon Stop APEC 2022 while the Ratsadon Stop APEC 2022 group was walking out of the Lan Khon Muang Town Square towards Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (the venue for the 2022 APEC meeting) to file a request to stop the APEC 2022 meeting.

As the protesters marched to Dinso Road, the officers fired rubber bullets at a distance of no more than 2 meters at the protesters, causing several people to be injured.
