According to a report inside Kampuchea-Krom today, Khmer Krom farmers are once against marching to the former Khmer city, Prey Nokor (renamed Ho Chi Minh) to demonstrate for the return of their ancestral homelands. Increasing reports of land confiscation by authorities have resulted in an increase in demonstrations by indigenous Khmer Krom people and ethnic Vietnamese conducted in Prey Nokor and Hanoi in recent months. Poverty, hunger and landlessness are driving these desperate farmers to protest demanding that resolutions be made to resolve the land crisis. Protestors report increasing acts of intimidation and harassment by local police authorities in a massive operation to halt further protest. Many protestors have been arrested for allegedly disturbing the “Vietnamese society” while others have been forced to become a Vietnamese spy in order to be released from jail.
