BANGKOK—Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said Wednesday he is prepared to lift the state of emergency declared last week to quell student-led pro-democracy demonstrations as a show of good faith and provided there is no more violence.
But representatives of around 10,000 protesters demonstrating later in the evening gave Prayut three days to resign or they would return to the streets. They then dispersed.
