BK lake residents to hold protest

BOEUNG Kak residents will protest outside the US embassy here in a bid to draw attention to the severe flooding to their homes caused by the filling in of the lake, community representative Be Pharom said.

"The United States is not involved in the development of Boeung Kak, but we want the US embassy to know about our plight and help us," Be Pharom told the Post on Monday. He said that residents are frustrated with the lack of government acknowledgement of their concerns.

The exact date of the protest has not yet been decided. The Boeung Kak development plan affects around 4,000 families.
