Phnom Penh municipal hall rejects request to protest

Phnom Penh municipal hall yesterday rejected a request from 250 garment workers to protest this Sunday because the chosen site would allegedly interfere with mourning for the late King Father.

Rong Chhun, president of the Cambodian Confederation of Unions, said city hall officials rejected his proposed route from the garden in front of the Supreme Court to the National Assembly, and asked him to move his protest to Freedom Park.

“I think it is an unreasonable reply,” he said. The workers are demanding wage increases from US$ 61 to US$150 per month.

“I do not know whether we will protest at the Freedom Park or our original site, but we will still protest on December 30 no matter what,” Rong Chhun said.
