‘Only democracy will save Cambodia,’ say protesters of Hun Sen regime

Any questions about Prime Minister Hun Sen’s imperial ambitions will be laid to rest on Aug. 22, when he stands down in favor of his son, Hun Manet, to take over the government of Cambodia.

Local members of the global Cambodian diaspora will protest the undemocratic transfer of power at Pailin Park — the Cambodian community’s name for Roberto Clemente Park, at 803 Middlesex St. — on Sunday, Aug. 20, from 3 to 5 p.m.

Hun Sen, who has held power since 1984, won Cambodia’s general election on July 23 in a landslide victory for the Cambodian People’s Party, which many critics called a sham election. The party captured 78-80% of the total turnout, according to Associated Press reporting.
