The President of Camboda's Independent Teachers Association calls on the United States Embassy in Phnom Penh and other organizations to put pressure on the Cambodian government to end its threat on the Cambodian people.

Mr. Rong Chhun who is a close friend of the slain union leader Chea Vichea told VOA that he received threat that he would be the next victim.

He said even the landlord was under pressure to ask him to move his office somewhere else as soon as possible. But Mr. Rong Chhun promised he will continue to defend the teachers' interests despite these intimidations.
