Day 3, The Last One..
September 17, 2013
by John Vink
The three days of mass protest at Freedom Park organised by the opposition CNRP are over... Finished... Until next time. For sure the protest was a success in terms of numbers of participants and of levels of enthusiasm. If they provided the leverage needed for the CNRP in the discussions between the ruling CPP and the CNRP leaders held during two consecutive mornings is still uncertain: nothing spectacular came out of those meetings so far. Also, the disproportionate deployment of police forces and the unprofessional handling of at least one conflictual situation (the one near the Norodom flyover) resulted in the death of one young man and several injured. A totally useless death. Unnecessary. Revolting even.
