Workers Block Roads, Add Pressure On Government…
December 27, 2013

More and more factory workers seem to join the protest. Now 'Hun Sen must go' is heard less than 'We want 160$'.

A group of a couple of thousand workers on their way to Freedom Place blocked Russian Boulevard at the Ministry of Labour to demand a salary rise of 80$.
The roadblock in front of the Ministry of Labour was kept all through the day.

Another roadblock, in front of the Special Economic Zone in Kambol, some 19 km outside of Phnom Penh, was set up by striking workers after they were pushed back by riot police firing in the air when trying to enter the SEZ. The SEZ was sealed off with a double layer of containers and fences with barbed wire.
