More protests planned at Vietnamese embassy

Despite being banned by City Hall, students will protest at the Vietnamese Embassy on Monday to demand it accept the “true history” of the former Kampuchea Krom provinces.

“Our stance is still the same,” said Mao Pises, president of the Federation of Cambodian Intellectuals and Students. On July 8, clashes erupted outside the embassy as protesters demanded a spokesman apologise for saying the provinces belonged to Vietnam long before being officially handed over by the French in 1949. Pises said he wanted an apology.
