Cambodia: The Cambodian Land Grab

ki-media links to Australian television story on the land grab taking place in Cambodia. After the Khmer Rouge was ousted, the Cambodia Goverment allowed anyone who occupied a piece of land legally for five year to become the de-facto owner of the land. As the land prices are growing, the government is ignoring its own laws. MM, writes a comment “are there any activist proposing a boycott movement of businesses that are buying these stolen land? someone with hands-on information should post a website or something – i would not want to go to Cambodia and shop at a location where land was grabbed from people illegally. Nor would I want to buy something here in the US that is associated with that business.”
