Outraged citizens gathered outside Wuzhishan's company headquarters (above) in Sen

Monorom on June 16. Phnong hill tribe villagers maintained a blockade against the

logging company in Dak Dam commune, to protest what they said was the government's

failure to enforce a stop-work order until land-ownership disputes were settled.

The blockade was finally broken up on Tuesday June 28. Villagers have ceased protesting,

and Wuzhishan has ceased operations until an undisclosed future date.
