Protesters wearing masks shout slogans as they march though Bangkok's shopping district, June 2, 2013.

Demonstrators, many wearing white Guy Fawkes masks, marched peacefully through Bangkok, Thailand's business district Sunday to protest the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

The White Maskers, as they call themselves, claim that the government is a puppet of exiled former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, who was ousted in a military coup in 2006.

A pro-government demonstration is planned for later in the day.
