Since the courts are corrupt in every which way, why not sway them for a good cause? These corporations have the power to pressure the courts in making the right decision. 23 innocent victims have been locked up for 5 months without any type of due process or evidence linking them to the crimes they are accused of.
These corporations can also pressure their outsourcing factories to raise the minimum wage, a fair wage that the factory workers deserve.
Here’s a unified slogan for these corporations: “Do The F’n Right Thing…“
UPDATE: All Protesters were found guilty (predictable) but their sentence and fines were suspended. Translation: ‘We don’t have a single piece of evidence but we just can’t let you walk away free after being locked up for 5 months. Our reputation and consistency is on the line!’
Sometimes its very easy to overlook certain things when the greater good of a goal is being met.
She may have lied or fabricated stories, but that should not diminish the great work she has done for many the people of Cambodia and others that are involved in the anti-human trafficking cause.
Her resignation is rightfully so because the greater goal is to help continue the fight of human trafficking so her foundation should be able to move on from this. It should not be the goal to discredit everything she has done and propose terms like ‘fraud’ or ‘predator’ without recognizing her work in context.
Thanks Somaly for your hard work and goodbye!

Police forces and the fake security guards cannot continue to fight the will of the people if the people stand strong together and defend their right to be free.
Phnom Penh:::April 17, 1975
The day that changed Cambodia’s landscape forever.
We hope to remember the victims and keep them in our hearts forever.
:::Happy Cambodian New Years:::
To all my Khmer brother and sisters, have a blessed week as we come together to celebrate our New Years globally.
Our thoughts are with the people in the motherland as they continue to fight for their freedom, land, opportunities, and hope for a better country.
For now, lets put our differences aside and celebrate with our family, friends and neighbors.
Lets all say a toast with our favorite glass of Hennessy!
