Many families in Cambodia are having their homes taken away so that big name companies can use their land for various projects, leaving many displaced, angry, and begging for land from the government.
A young girl from the Boeung Kak lake community cries during a protest outside the Ministry of Justice in Phnom Penh on May 31st. Protesters called for the release of 15 residents jailed last month.
Heng Sreyleak, 13, the daughter of Heng Mom, said the charges were “unjust”. “All they were doing was protesting for the 12.44 hectares of land promised to them by…Hun Sen,” she said.
