Day 2 of a 3 day CNRP protest...
October 24, 2013

The demonstration by the opposition CNRP churns along its second day, unhindered.

A petition was delivered in the morning by a huge and enthusiastic crowd headed by Sam Rainsy and Kem Sokha, co-Presidents of the opposition CNRP, to the French, British and U.S.A. embassies, three countries which signed the October 23rd 1991 Paris Peace Accords promising Cambodia a pluralistic democracy.

In the afternoon, representatives of various communities and faraway provinces take the front stage, finally have their 15 minutes of fame, and can tell the (CNRP) world what troubles them in their life, how hard and unjust it can be, how tough it is to make ends meet and how fed up they are with what has been done to them for the last 28 years.

Others, exhausted by the heat and the march to the various embassies in the morning, rest or chill out in the park surrounding Wat Phnom.
