Every year

Every year the unions organise a ceremony to commemorate the assassination of Chea Vichea, shot while buying his newspaper. An occasion for all the opposition forces to gather and collect themselves at the place of the killing. (VIJ2009005) There is a multimedia slideshow on ka-set.info with pictures of both me and Vandy Rattana…

  2. …it has a little Kalvar visual humor in it.

    Of the slideshow in general, I feel like I’m transported to the street.
