Preah Vihear Residents Protest Future Eviction
By Aun Pheap, The Cambodia Daily, November 19, 2013
Fifty-three families in Preah Vihear province’s Kulen district on Sunday protested outside the headquarters of a Malaysian company that is threatening to clear villagers’ farmland to make way for a rubber plantation, rights groups and officials said Monday.
The families, who live in Srayong commune’s Srayong Khang Choeung village, gathered at the headquarters of FP Malaysia, claiming company representatives told them last week to stop cultivating their farmland because the land belonged to the company.
