A number of roads and street venues in central Bangkok are occupied by PDRC demonstrators. Commuters are advised to take detours and avoid all protest sites.

Meanwhile, the Center for the Administration of Peace and Order (CAPO) is closely assessing the situation as both police and military men have been deployed in various locations to ensure safety for all sides.
