Second protest: Krom groups headed back to embassy

Khmer Krom organisations and activists are calling for another protest outside the Vietnamese Embassy on July 21 following what was perceived as an inflammatory remark by an embassy spokesman.

In a statement released on Saturday, the Khmer National Liberation Front – a Denmark-based rights organisation considered by the government to be a terrorist network – appealed to all Khmer citizens, Khmer Krom people and “lovers of democracy” to peacefully demonstrate against “exaggerated” claims that the former Kampuchea Krom land rightfully belonged to Vietnam rather than Cambodia.

At last week’s initial embassy demonstration, clashes left one security guard and several protesters injured.

City Hall spokesman Long Dimanche said yesterday the government has not yet received a request for another protest. “We will have to see the purpose of their demonstration before we make a decision,” he said.
