T-Shirts and Tents for Borei Keila and Boeung Kak

Alongside Housing Rights Task Force, Strey Khmer Organization distributed fifty-five t-shirts with pictures of land rights activists Yorm Bopha (Boeung Kak Lake) and Tim Sakmony (Borei Keila). These two women were unjustly sent to pre-trial detention for their peaceful attempts secure land titles through demonstrations. The community is gathering to petition the Royal Government of Cambodia, ASEAN, and President Obama for the release of these two female community activists.

10 tents were also purchased and distributed to the Borei Keila Community. A big Thank You to Urgent Action Fund for their generous contribution to this cause.

More information on Yorm Bopha and Tim Sakmony can be found on this Civil Society Statement calling for their release. Click Here.
