2013 – The Year of a New Beginning

Mu Sochua, CNRP lawmaker-elect

“2013 was the year of a new beginning for those who gave it all to the electoral campaign for the Cambodia National Rescue Party. Pdho or ‘change’ became the word that had a political, economic and social significance. On the campaign trail, people from across generations shared the same dream: a better, fairer Cambodia.”

Strike Numbers Swell

The CNRP non-stop protest that started on 15 December is now gaining a critical force with the endorsement of hundreds of thousands of workers that have moved towards a general strike for US$160 minimum wage.

This Sunday 29Dec. will be another monumental street protest that will put the city to a real stand still.

Workers blocked the Labor Ministry and the road leading to Phnom Penh International Airport yesterday and will continue on Monday when govt. officials meet union leaders again.

Next move:mobilize civil servants
