March Against Child Labor

As a follow-up to the Global March Against Child Labor held last year, child labor

activists organized celebrations in Phnom Penh on Feb 4. Children and NGO staff came

together with government and employer representatives, trade union activists and

politicians for a workshop to present and discuss the problem of child labor in Cambodia.

The celebration was highlighted by speeches and interviews of Cambodian child laborers,

and a show by Lotto, the famous Cambodian comedian and a former child laborer himself.

Also attending were Peng Sokunthea, 16, and Chan Makara, 17, who had just returned

from Manila where they participated in an appeal for immediate action against child

slavery. The two teenagers also participated in last year's six-month march which

organizers say was the largest social mobilisation in history for the benefit of

children.
