Boeung Kak Lake residents to hold a 5-day demonstration at the Freedom [Suppression] Park

Sand pumping to drown put houses by the evil Shukaku Inc. Co.
Residents of the Boeung Kak Lake area plan to hold a 5-day non-violent
demonstration in January 2011 to demand that Kep Chuktema, the Phnom
Penh city governor, resolve their land issues for them. Mrs. Huot
Mutdy, the representative of the more than 150 families in Village No.
20, Srah Chork commune, Daun Penh district, told the Phnom Penh Post on
Monday that she sent a letter to the city hall on Monday morning,
asking for an authorization to hold a non-violent demonstration at the
Freedom Park between 03 and 08 January 2011. Mrs. Huot said that
residents of 7 villages will join in this demonstration to demand that
Kep Chuktema remove their 15-hectare land plot from the development
concession in Boeung Kak and allow the residents to build their houses
on the land on their own. The residents also demanded that the Shukaku
Inc. company negotiates to provide market value for their land and that
it stops the sand pumping to drown out the residents.
