Aids rally planned

O RGANIZERS plan a "massive public demonstration of concern" to alert Cambodians to the Aids threat on Sunday, Dec 4 - officially designated as Cambodian Aids Day 1994.

"A couple of thousand people turned out for last year's rally, but we expect that to be well and truly topped this year," organizer Nicholas Hughes said.

NGOs have already been asked for money to make the parade "the largest and most dramatic" to publicize and educate people about Cambodia's spiraling Aids threat.

The rally and parade is expected to start around 1:30pm outside Wat Botum, and hopefully take in a route that includes the museum, the Royal Palace and Independence Monument.
