The Rights of Others – Land Concessions by Cambodian Government

Most of these lands were inhabited by farmers and indigenous peoples who have been evicted and relocated to areas without access to basic services.

In so doing, they are subject to harassment by the involved companies as well as police brutality and arrests.
