City Hall approves May Day parade

THE Phnom Penh Municipality has given the green light for unions and workers to hold a parade to mark May Day today.

The city received a letter from the Cambodian Labour Confederation and the Free Trade Union on April 9 applying for a parade by 2,000 people, according to a letter signed by Phnom Penh Governor Kep Chuktema.

"For this case, the Phnom Penh Municipality has no objection," the letter said.

Free Trade Union President Chea Mony said the parade will start at 8:15am today near Wat Botum.

Siem Reap and Poipet will also host May Day events.
