Lanka Pagoda –
Who Killed Chea Vichea?
Chea Vichea not only led the workers’ movement of Cambodia, he challenged all those in politics in the country that came out of genocide and continues to be governed by one strong man. Chea Vichea accepted nothing less for the workers than their fundamental rights for respect and their right for dignity.
Today mark the 8th year of Chea Vichea’s assassination and yet the killers are still free. Cambodians officially may not know the real killers but we have a v ery clear idea who gave the order.
The real killers will be found the day Cambodia is governed with rule of law.
Remembering 22 January, 2004 keeps the hope for us that justice is real and not just right but an absolute element of freedom.
We will continue to march, we will continue to go to Lanka pagoda where our dear friend was shot at point blank. We will continue to demand justice.
Vote for change in Cambodia.
