Peaceful walking rally in TTP today

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Peaceful walking rally in TTP today

Post by StroppyChops » Wed Jun 27, 2018 4:06 pm

I was travelling through TTP this afternoon, turning from MTT onto the lane beside the sewer, and had to wait at intersections that were all under police direction (the boys in dark green) as they escorted a walking rally of some few hundred people walking silently along poo-creek. No signage of any political party, and only one or two actual banners - hand written on a sheet in Khmer. What was weird was the silence - hundreds of people walking singly or two abreast (no, Vlad), not talking, nothing from the peanut gallery, and even the police escort seemed to want to make it silently clear they were just doing their jobs.

So, in true Cambodian journalistic style...

A group of unknown number was walking from an unknown point of origin to an unknown destination for unknown reasons, but doing it silently and with a police escort.

Was it this group, Strop?

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Couldn't say - possibly, but without the banners and placards - but can I just say I like their hats?
