SOME PICTURES OF BORDER VISITS

Students' Movement for Democracy (SMD) has actively conducted "Border Visits Program" after its monthly training on "International Treaties, Laws and Border Investigation", finishes, to students from various Universities and High Schools to the all the provinces along bordering with Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos. The above, for instance, is the pictures taken during SMD border visit to Kampongcham Province to Phum Dong, Phum Don Rot, Phum Trapaing Rusey, and Phum Srey Tanorng.This is one of the border visits conducted along the Eastern border of the country. These pictures were taken in Memot and Porhnearkrek, Kampongcham Province.

Before 1996, 1998, and 2000, these field rices (first top below) belonged to Cambodia. The Cambodian people had cultivated these lands for generations and now these lands were invaded and taken illegally by Youn.

Mr. Pang Sokheoun and H.E. Mao Munywan led the group walking in the newly invaded rice fields along the border from Phum Donrot to Phum Dong and then passed Phum Trapaing Rusey to Phum Sretanorng - 17km long, and confronting with 17 Youn soldiers along the way. Yet Cambodian border soldiers were ignoring the threats, refused responsibility, and walked away.








In this picture, Youn soldier was standing in the dry stream and banning us not to pass the middle line of the stream claiming that the New Border Line is in the middle line of the stream. And beyond that are Youn's lands now. Actually, before 1995, these lands belonged to Cambodian farmers in Phumdong, Khum Donrot, Srok Memot. The invasion is 3km deep inside asserted by villagers.

Here we had a determined to walk even though we were stopped and threatened by Youn soldiers. Here the villagers gathering more and more - old, young, boys, and girls. We walked bravely ahead to our distination at Phum Sretanorng.


You can see in the pictures from the top down that we, Mr. Pang Sokheoun, Mr. Ir Chana, ... with congressman, Mao Muniwan, Kampongcham Provine, accompanied by 43 students, monks and about two hundreds people from Phum Donrot and Phum Dong, were walking - from Phum Donrot to Phum Dong, to Phum Trapaing Rusey, and to Phum Srey Tanorng, Memot, Kampongcham - in our lands that have just taken by Youn yet we were threatened by Youn border soldiers. We were stopped many times with guns pointint at us, but Youn soldiers failed to do so since our members of SMD and the people were idealy committed to protect the country and we walked to the end of our plan and recieved information we wanted.

YOU CAN SEE PICTURE THAT SMD ACTIVIST, Mr. LENG PENGSOR, HOLDING THE CAMBODIAN FLAG IN IN THE RICE FIELD WHERE THE PALM TREE WAS CUT DOWN. IT WAS THE NEWLY INVADED LAND BY YOUN. WHEREVER, THE LANDS ARE TAKEN, YOUN ALWAYS DESTROY OUR IDENTITY IMMEDIATELY.

In Kamponcham, some places are invaded deep inside from 600 m up to 7 km. And what is the most remarkable invasion is the Ampel Village where there are more than now 1000 Cambodian families. This village is taken away in the end of 1980s. THIS IS JUST IN ONE DISTRICT IN ONE PROVINCE. However, Hun Sen governement keeps refusing the truth and yet threaten SMD as well as other Cambodian people who complaint about this invasion.

As a key witness of the land invsaion from bordering countries and as a response to the tratorous leadership of this government, Mr. Pang Sokheoun wrote a letter to PM Hun Sen on 26 October 2005 to bet with him if PM Hun Sen is sure that we Cambodia don't lose land to Youn affected by his signature, on 10 October 2005, to the Suplemental Treaty to Illegal 1985 Treaty.
