More than 500 Cambodian-American protesters gathered outside the White House in Washington on Monday, demanding the release of 23 detained protesters still being held in a remote facility. The arrests were part of a violent crackdown on protesters earlier this month that left at least five people dead and another 40 injured. “We are strongly against violence committed by Hun Sen’s army, which kills our people and workers,” said Rany Lushenski, an organizer. The White House protest is one of a number of ongoing demonstrations in the US by Cambodians, while ongoing demonstrations in Cambodia continue as well. (Sok Khemara, Washington)
