CNRP protest? .......Not today

Post by kiwiincambodia » Mon May 30, 2016 3:13 pm

Hearing reports the CNRP tried to march from their HQ to the palace to deliver a petition to the King today but were blocked from entering the city.

Anyone have more information on this?

The end of Monivong leading to the bridge towards the HQ is blocked with traffic as far as I can see from my office so if you have to travel this way make sure you give yourself plenty of time.

What do we say to the gods of protest?

I went past this morning about 9 am, on the bus. A guy waved to me so I gave him the ''thumbs up '' and 20 or 30 supporters saw me do that and returned the '' thumbs up ''.

There are certainly problems on-going, also heard there are definitely moves afoot.

"US Congressman Allen Lowenthal, Co-chair of the Cambodia Caucus in the US House of Representatives, . . . said, . . . "We urge the Cambodian government to immediately cease all harassment of the Cambodia National Rescue Party and foster an environment where democracy can thrive and flourish"."

That's telling them! :no:
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Update from the PPP


CNRP deliver petition calling on King to intervene in political crisis
Tue, 31 May 2016
Meas Sokchea and Shaun Turton

Twenty-three cars carrying more than two dozen opposition lawmakers yesterday negotiated their way past police road blocks and delivered a mass petition to the Royal Palace, calling on King Norodom Sihamoni to intervene and put an end to the Kingdom’s current political crisis.

Setting off just hours after ruling party lawmakers voted to allow police to arrest the opposition’s acting president, Kem Sokha, the procession marked the Cambodia National Rescue Party’s first major public pushback against what’s been widely labelled a political crackdown.

In the morning’s session, the Cambodian People’s Party’s 68 lawmakers voted to circumvent Sokha’s parliamentary immunity by declaring his recent failure to appear for court questioning a “flagrant” offence, after which Justice Ministry spokesman Chin Malin confirmed police would seek the politician’s arrest.

“Now, Mr Kem Sokha will be placed under arrest, as he has committed a real offence,” Malin said. “But we have not arrested him yet.”
