Campaigning in North West Cambodia: Land Is Life

Back in Daunh Ba commune where the CPP recently distributed a few parcels of land to veterans without issuing them land title documents.

Our 4 tractors slowly weaved their way through this tiny remote village. The level of fear could be clearly felt-the villagers were not coming out of their huts to greet us.

With loud speakers and door to door visits, we tried to explain to the voters how they can have a free life, free from fear, free from the village chief’s control by voting for SRP. SRP commune chief will protect them against land grab. SRP will issue them land titles.

This is clearly former Khmer Rouge territory and still controlled by former KR soldiers.

30 years of CPP and the vil lagers still have rice porridge mixed with few leaves, for lunch.

Development CPP style.
