The Bangkok police have asked a pro-democracy activist to seek permission from the junta to host a symbolic activity to commemorate the 2010 crackdown on the red shirts. 
 
On 15 May 2018, Sombat Boonngamanong, a pro-democracy activist and the leader of the Grin Party, posted on Facebook that Lumpini Police Station had rejected his request to hold an assembly at Ratchaprasong intersection on 19 May, the eighth anniversary of the 2010 crackdown on red-shirt protesters.
