Boueng Kak silenced

Villagers facing eviction from Boeung Kak lake said yesterday they had been forced out of joining a protest at Phnom Penh’s Freedom Park today after authorities threatened to cancel a meeting on Friday aimed at settling an ongoing dispute over how they would be relocated. Ly Mom, a representative of the Boeung Kak lake villagers, said yesterday they would support demonstrators protesting today against economic land concessions granted in the Prey Lang forest from the sidelines. She said Phnom Penh municipal authorities had also rejected their application to hold their own separate protest today.
