[Cambodia] Union & association gathering turns to violent clashes

[Cambodia] Union & association gathering turns to violent clashes | The Cambodia | Scoop.it

A union and association gathering inside Freedom Park this morning has been violently blocked as hundreds of military police and riot police armed with guns and electric batons joined municipal security guards and thugs wielding slingshots, rocks and batons, with both groups indiscriminately targeting union supporters, journalists and rights observers. So far, at least eight people are known to have been injured. The peaceful gathering, organised by 9 unions and associations including IDEA, CATU, CITA, CICA, CFSWF, NTUC, BWTUC, FTUWC and CYN, called for the release of 23 workers and rights defenders arrested earlier this month, a rise in the minimum wage to $160 a month, and end to violence against human rights defenders and justice for the deaths during the Jan 2 and 3 clashes. The gathering was blocked by at least 400 riot police and municipal security guards in Freedom Park, who forced hundreds of union organisers and supporters from Freedom Park and surrounding streets to Dragon Bridge, Wat Phnom and Preah Aung Dong hospital. During sporadic bouts of violence from 9.30am, security guards threw rocks in to the crowd and shocked and hit participants with electric batons. Two people believed to be undercover authority have been beaten by the crowd. Two people have reportedly been arrested during the clashes. Published on January 26, 2014

Pongsametrey S.'s insight:

I have tried it and hope to have it for our city.

The service need also to manage time and well inform to clients by each bus stop station about the estimated time for each period.

International Brands Seek Probe Into Protest Killings | The Cambodia Daily

Thirty international union federations and global brands, including Walt Disney, Wal-Mart and Gap, wrote to Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday expressing “grave concern” over the fatal shooting of five garment workers this month and calling for an immediate investigation into the killings, as well as a meeting with the premier.

In a joint letter addressed directly to Mr. Hun Sen, they also urged the government to “respect the rights” of the 23 union leaders, garment workers and protesters arrested earlier this month during protests demanding a higher minimum wage in the country’s garment sector.

Challenging the ban on demonstrations in Phnom Penh, activists rallied Friday at the U.S. Embassy, the Japanese Embassy, the Australian Embassy and the German Embassy before stopping for lunch and rallying again, in the afternoon, at the British Embassy, the European Union and World Bank offices, then marching, finally, to the South Korean Embassy to lobby for the release of protesters jailed earlier this month.
