Logging in Virakchey National Park
This is happening NOW !
This pictures were taken yesterday in Koh Peak village, 45mn upstream from Katchon Village.
Virachey. 'This is also our forest'. On the 28th of November I was meeting a team of volunteer students in Koah Piek village north of the Sesan river. I ran into a bunch of men preparing a forest raping machine to cross the Sesan river. There was already a huge pile of luxury Beng timber ready to be taking on transport. I started taking pictures. Some of the men were absolutely not pleased I was doing this but I though f*ck you and f*ck you too. Apparently nobody intent to stop me probably I was a foreigner. Eventually they crossed the heavy truck to the north side of the river,and its not coming back untill the whole forest is raped from luxury timber. This is the end of what once was a beautiful forest.
