“Let return to take back our homes, our land and our country from Hun Sen. Don’t’ let him rob them from us,” Sam Rainsy told a rally of CNRP supporters in Australia.

“I will lead [our] brothers–two million workers from Thailand, Malaysia, Korea and Japan–who are forced to work in foreign countries. Let’s go back to our home,” he said.
