Free the 15! Solidarity Action at the National Assembly

Family and friends of the Boeung Kak 15 gathered at the National Assembly this morning to call for the release of the jailed activists. While a petition was delivered to lawmakers inside, the group outside sang songs, threw lotus flower petals, and left some flowers bearing the message “Free the 15!” at the gates of the National Assembly. One elderly man from Boeung Kak also had his head shaved.

Venerable Loun Sovath, reportedly charged with incitement, also attended the rally, as did a number of undercover police.
