CAMBODIA. Phnom Penh. 17/09/2013: Monks receive balloons during the 3rd and last day of a mass demonstration at ‘Freedom Park’ by the opposition CNRP to dispute the results of the 2013 legislative elections.
This photograph is part of ‘Hearths of Resistance’ an ebook which focuses on the social and political turmoil during the 18 months after the 2013 legislative elections in Cambodia. With the opposition CNRP gaining a surprising 55 of the 123 seats at the National Assembly, this was the first serious democratic challenge for Prime Minister Hun Sen in some 30 years. Surfing on this success and relying on a pool of disgruntled citizens who suffered land grabbings, on the 600,000 garment factory workers living on insufficient wages and more generally on normal citizens confronted with a daily dosis of corruption and injustice, the CNRP managed to mobilize the masses for 6 months. A violent crackdown by the army on January 3rd of striking workers forced the opposition into a strategy of compromise. The workers and the evicted communities had to rely on their own.
