October 17, 2014 (Phnom Penh) Over 200 civil parties and victims of the Khmer Rouge regime on Friday protested in front of the ECCC, a U.N.-backed war crimes court, as the court begins its second trial of Case 002, which will deal with genocide and a broad range of crimes against humanity. The protesters demanded $13,500 each for their suffering and losses during the regime.
Most of protesters were unhappy that that the court and the Cambodian government paid very little support to victims compared to what is being given to imprisoned Khmer Rouge leaders. Below are the photos I took during the protest on Friday. The link will take you to a New York Times story I contributed to.
