Representatives from Thmor Kol community went to Ministry of Interior to submit a letter regarding their land dispute on Feb. 22, 2013. A small group of women from BK and BKL community joined in solidarity. Mixed police forces – including undercover police – grabbed and shoved the women in an attempt to remove them from the front of the ministry. Many women were scratched and bruised.
For viewers who don’t speak Khmer, right before police start grabbing the women, the policeman says that they (the government) don’t need their (the community people) votes. Videos courtesy of Licadho Canada.
