Amnesty issues urgent action appeal

Amnesty International has issued an Urgent Action Appeal in response to the jailing of Boeung Kak lake activists:

Thirteen women representatives from the Boeung Kak Lake community in the Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh, have been sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison after a summary trial. The women were arrested on 22 May during a peaceful protest to support 18 local families whose homes had been destroyed in forced evictions. You can access the appeal here.
