Are there riots expected ?

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.

Are there riots expected ?

Post by beaker » Fri Jun 22, 2018 3:40 pm

Just saw over 100 cop?s/soldiers?, in dark green almost black uniforms, with full riot gear, (helmets, shields, batons, etc) practicing in a field near the prison here in Ta Khmao.

29th should make for good photos ,
the last election was rather tame, but loved the groups of kids out on bikes with banners,

Curious if this election will draw the same numbers of voters or if many will stay at home as its pretty much a shoe in

tried to post some images but.....the imgur is not working for me

There will not be any riots of any consequence.

Growing middle class, loads of money floating around, factory workers earning higher wages, better infrastructure.

I got stuck in one of those rally’s near the old freedom park when I was moving from Score to the Parrot one night. Ended up staying and getting absolutely hammered with a bunch of khmer guys. Was a fun night. When I finally turned up at the parrot I could barely stand.

Is there anything to riot about? Any CNRP stuff will get you banged up.
