Cambodia protest

Farmers of Koh Kong province protesting land evictions are blocked by security during a protest rally as it moves near the Prime Minister’s residence, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017.

Government security on Tuesday prevented the protesters from submitting a petition to Prime Minister Hun Sen at his residence to help solve their long-running land dispute with a local tycoon who owns sugarcane plantations they accuse of grabbing their land.

A banner reads ” Please His Excelency Chea Sophara stimulates to resolving our land issue.”
