The Not in Our Name (NION) group has collected more than 250 signatures of those

opposed to war in Iraq. The petitions will be presented to 12 foreign embassies in

Phnom Penh on Feb 14, which coincides with anti-war protests around the world. Sébastien

should instead focus on battling AIDS, illiteracy and poverty. "We see this

especially clearly in Cambodia - war has taught people to solve problems through

conflict. War does not bring any solutions."
