Youth border activists display matching tattoos of Cambodia's map in an undated photo.
“The government is responsible before the history [over the border issue],” he said. “What are the youth responsible for?”
An increasing number of youths in Cambodia are tattooing the country’s map on their bodies in protest of recent legislation that they say could lead to the ceding of territory to Vietnam, amid a long-running dispute over the border between the two neighbors.
Speaking to RFA’s Khmer Service, a young man from Siem Reap province’s Pok Tho commune said he and others decided to tattoo a map of Cambodia on their bodies because they want to ensure that the government maintains all 181,035 square kilometers (69,900 square miles) of the country’s territory while deciding how to demarcate the border.
Var Kimhong, the government’s senior minister in charge of the border, refused to comment on the popular tattoo, saying only that getting one is a personal decision.
