Cambodian opposition unites under Democratic Movement for Change

Dear Editor,

This [recent union] is a very important step in the democratic effort.

I applaud this brave act, as it puts together the two undisputed leaders in the opposition movement.

But be very careful, as Hun Sen always moves to break up democratic parties, and I call on [Kem] Sokha and [Sam] Rainsy, two genuine heroes, to keep a strong front.

It seems Hun Sen is afraid of opposition to his bullying strongman government.

So I call on the two opposition leaders to be extra careful, as Hun Sen has a special way to punish those in the opposition. Just remember 3/30/97.
