Expat Ben Davis and family, defending Phnom Tnout Wildlife Sanctuary, conflicts with villagers

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.

But why is an EXPAT leading the charge against powerful interests to save Cambodian forests?
fixed that for you..
Cause he wants to and Khmers are more interested in the here and now, ( putting food on the table NOW) , especially poor ones.
In a nation run by swine, all pigs are upward-mobile and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. HST

Well thank God those poor hungry Khmers have an enlightened expat who knows what they REALLY need and is here to save them from their own stupid inclinations for food, shelter and what not.

I'm not arguing the merit of what he's doing. I'm saying he lacks standing, which is polite for he should mind his own business and work on cleaning the mess in his own back yard.

You gave to admire the bravery of someone taking a stand against deforestation and extinction of wildlife. It’s time to get out though.

Anti-logging is an environmental concern and he comes from a country that is the 2nd largest emitter of greenhouse gasses. Maybe he can focus his reform minded energies on lowing greenhouse gas emissions in the USA.

I admire his courage but I also admire that Aussie girl in SR who just smiled after her bar was raided for weed related activities and I also admire that crazy man who wouldn't return the cow. All that admiration and they are still both in jail.
