Banging at the Bank’s Gates…

Two Boeung Kak Lake communities (here and here), one already evicted and the other under threat of an eviction, the Borei Keila community (here) and representatives of the Pochentong community requested a meeting with the World Bank related to its re-engagement with the governement after the bank suspended its lendings in 2011 in view of the situation at Boeung Kak Lake. At the time I left 8 representatives were going to be allowed inside to discuss their concerns.
