Violence in Freedom Park this Morning

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.

I'm afraid Sochua has a permanent address in Dreamland.

Is this the first time in recent past that the demonstrators got one up on the police? I wonder if there will be a backlash and what that might be.

Apparently this time, it's the "security guards" who got badly beaten. (The Peck, was it really riot police officers or the private security guards/government thugs?)

They don't get my sympathy as they are also guilty of indulging in state-licensed violence, but they don't deserve the violence and beating either (nobody does in my view, even the worst scumbag).

If anything, that just shows the failure of the so-called pacifist, non-violent activists to inspire their own supporters and the failure of the government in its duty to maintain peace, safety and order.

Just read those. These are depressingly appalling.
