Non-Violence in Action

CNRP 23-25 October non-violent mass demonstration to commemorate the 22nd Anniversary of the Paris Peace Accords – Day 1

Just 2 days ago, police forces occupied Freedom Park, trashed the gathering of 1,000 grassroots networks and at the same moment 2,000 workers were chased off Hun Sen Park.

CNRP stood firm on its plan to hold its non-violent mass protest at Freedom Park and with a march to 9 locations in Phnom Penh.

The government is forced to negotiate for acceptable solutions and delivered by puling off all barricades in the city and almost no heavy geared anti-riot police were seen.

CNRP repeats its stance for non-violence and rights to peaceful assembly.

Critics predicted a smaller protest as people are “tired” of protest but the numbers are bigger than ever.
