Workers Block Roads, Add Pressure On Government…

The roadblock in front of the Ministry of Labour was kept all through the day by workers striking for a salary rise.

Another roadblock, in front of the Special Economic Zone in Kambol, some 19 km outside of Phnom Penh, was set up by striking workers after they were pushed back by riot police when trying to enter the SEZ. The SEZ was sealed off with a double layer of containers and fences with barbed wire.
