Zero Evictions soccer tournament 2009

More than 120 children from Phnom Penh resettlement sites and communities under threat of eviction gathered Thursday 24th September 2009 at the Cambodia Mekong University football field to take part in the ZERO Evictions Competition. The aim of the event was to have a fun day for the children but also to raise awareness about ongoing land issues and the impact on Cambodia’s most vulnerable families. Chea Ratha, 15, from the Boeung Kak area commented ‘I don’t know about the Government’s development plan, but I know they are violating my homeland’.  For more information see The Phnom Penh Post
