Predictions for weekend

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Some quotes from here http://stream.licadho-cambodia.org/kem_ ... rocession/

"It is now estimated over 1 million and the pocession is about 5km"

"Here mourners are seen passing the Vattanac tower at the northern end of Monivong Boulevard.
Teang Pa, Executive Director of the Cambodian Centre for Independent Media, estimates the procession to be 5km long."

I'd like to know what you are listening to or viewing. I don't call the figures into question, I want improved coverage.

I wondered how many of the vehicles participating in the 5km+ traffic jam were going to get gas. Seems like it will be worse than I thought.

"Images are being shared on social media appearing to show police officers blockading petrol stations along the route, preventing vehicles in the procession from refueling."
