545,000 sign web petition to stop bill

- +

An online petition to gather one million signatures to stop the amnesty bill has drawn more than 545,000 supporters in less than two weeks. 

The Anti-Corruption Organisation of Thailand (ACT) started the campaign at the change.org platform on Oct 30, after the House committee voted to broaden the scope of the amnesty bill.

The website is an open platform for anyone to launch a petition on a wide range of social, political or personal issues. It was started in 2007 by Stanford graduate Ben Rattray and now serves as the world's biggest petition platform with more than 20 million users in 196 countries. The Thai version of the site was launched last year.
