Following is the translated version of the full text:

 "Since November, numerous protest rallies took place in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, mostly in the vicinity of Bangkok Democracy Monument Square and various locations of government departments.  Anti-government protesters continue to occupy the Finance Ministry building, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and various government departments.  The authority in Thailand had increased security measures and implemented the Internal Security Act in Bangkok and proximities to strengthen local security.
