Ducks, the emblem of pro-democracy demonstrators in Thailand

Pro-democracy protesters in Thailand took to the streets of the capital again on Wednesday, even as the government escalated its legal battle against them, relaunching the use of a harsh law against defamation of the monarchy.

Accessories representing the image of a yellow rubber duck, an icon of the movement, could be seen almost everywhere.

A protest leader even gave a fiery speech from a bed truck scene while wearing a duck costume.

Ducks became a symbol of resistance last week when human-sized inflatable ducks were brought to a rally outside Parliament and satirically dubbed the Protesters Navy.
