Don't wear black on Mondays...

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.

Black Monday Arrests Return Amid Fears of ‘Revolution’

March 28, 2017

Two “Black Monday” protesters were arrested on Monday for the first time since activist Tep Vanny was thrown in jail in August, while an official again warned of the dangers that the long-running campaign would lead to a “color revolution.”

“This morning we were arrested at about 8 a.m.,” Ms. Sorn said from the district police station. “They just came and arrested us without discussing anything.”

Ms. Sorn claimed she was visited by her village chief on Sunday night and warned against wearing a black T-shirt the next day.

“The village chief told me last night that I cannot wear a black shirt, as this shirt represents the Black Monday campaign,” she said.

“If we take it off, where will the Black Monday campaign be?” she asked. “I think it’s only a shirt. What law says it’s wrong?”

Ms. Sreynak, also speaking by telephone while in police detention, said she was targeted while peacefully protesting in her neighborhood.

“Before they arrested me, I was holding a banner in front of my house,” she said, adding that she was also wearing a black shirt, which was not banned under any law of which she was aware. “They told me that I was doing wrong and then they took me into the car.”

Ms. Sorn said that she and Ms. Sreynak were released at about 7:30 p.m. after signing a document saying they would no longer take part in Black Monday protests... ... on-127141/
