Over 300 People Rally at CC1 and CC2 to Support Detained Activists

On December 28 more than 300 people rallied in front of Prey Sar’s Correctional Centre 1 and 2 in support of the 18 land rights activists currently in detention. Monks led the rally, which was made of a number of NGOs, supporters, community members, relatives and families of the activists.

The morning started at CC2 where the group requested for the end of the hunger strike of the 8 female activists detained there. After prayers and speeches by the monks, they marched to CC1 to demand justice for the 18 activists. At CC1 community members and relatives gave speeches asking that Human Rights in Cambodia is preserved and protected.

The peaceful activity came to a close later in the morning without incidents with the prison staff.
