Boeung Kak lake, #35
October 31, 2013
by John Vink
On the 35th demonstration for 2013 only that I took photographs of (not counting guest appearances during other demonstrations), members of the Boeung Kak lake community gathered in front of the Municipal Court to deliver evidence about the vicious crackdown by masked men, allegedly Phnom Penh Municipality Security Guards dressed in civilian clothes, on a vigil the community was holding on September 22nd.

Several members of the community, as well as human rights monitors and journalists, were injured that night.
