McDonald’s Locations Used as Meeting Grounds for Thai Protests

Of all places to meet up for civil disobedience, they choose McD’s…

From vice.com:

“McThai, the company that operates McDonald’s in Thailand, released a statement on its Facebook page Wednesday saying the company is firmly “maintaining a neutral stance in the current political situation.”

The statement comes after one particular McDonald’s restaurant in downtown Bangkok has turned into the site for many of the anti-coup protests in the past week, and a hub for activists, because of its centralized location. Other McDonald’s locations throughout the country have also been turned into meeting places for activists to protest the military’s takeover of the government last week.”
