Bangkok will be in a State of Emergency for the next four-weeks with a ban on public gatherings of more than 5 people.
If protests continue PM Prayut has warned today that the government will invoke a nightly curfew, prohibiting people from leaving their homes during certain hours.
The original order, imposed early Thursday morning at 4am, led to the breaking up of a pro-democracy demonstration by police armed with riot gear.
Protesters started at Democracy Monument on Wednesday early afternoon and headed towards Government House to set up camp in an effort to pressure Prayut to resign.
Over 20 people have so far been arrested and face charges of violating the emergency decree and holding an illegal demonstration.
