Hundreds of demonstrators shouting "Freedom!" and "Democracy!" gathered Sunday near a major shopping mall in downtown Bangkok to denounce the country's May 22 coup despite a lockdown by soldiers of some of the city's major intersections.Protesters showed up at a site that lacked any mass army presence -an elevated walking beside the Terminal 21 shopping mall, chanting and holding signs saying "No Coup".Since the coup, pro-democracy protesters have come out on the streets nearly every day, marching through Bangkok and scuffling with soldiers.Protesters have started wearing masks with the faces of political personalities, including the country's new ruler, army chief Gen.
