The sun is rising in Cambodia -- giving light and life!  (Demonstration for electoral reform, Monday, May 20, Phnom Penh)


With my fellow member of the Orphans Class, when we still believed in the Khmer Rouge Tribunal (Demonstration for electoral reform, this Monday, May 20 morning in Phnom Penh)

 

REFORM

 

National Election Committee

 

NOW!


MONDAY, May 20, at 7 A.M.

Democracy Square (near Wat Phnom)


I will join this demonstration, demanding electoral reform.


Recently, I had a conversation with friends who are Singaporean Christians about the mega-church phenomenon in Singapore (which I didn't know about) and the "Prosperity Gospel", how the pastor of one of the more famous mega-churches, married to a celebrity, is embroiled in a corruption scandal.


I commented that it's as much a reflection of the congregation as of the pastor. They themselves quite successful business people, agreed.

 

My comment also fits the Cambodian situation. It has been said that our past and present DISMAL, violent, tyrannical leadership is as much a reflection of the Cambodian people.


IT IS TIME THAT WE ASPIRE TO SOMETHING BETTER THAN THE KHMER ROUGE STANDARD. I want to be proud of my leader, not be embarrassed.

 

I want my leader to help me and other Cambodians realize our HUMAN POTENTIAL, not leadership that uses state resources to wage war on its own people, and do the bidding of foreign powers.


I am so sick and tired of the violence, the DESTRUCTION that this Hun Sen regime reeks on the Cambodian people and the country. I am so ashamed and so embarrassed, and so INFURIATED by the way this regime destroys its own people and the natural beauty and resources of the land.

 

IT IS TIME FOR NEW COMPETENT, CARING LEADERSHIP.  IT IS TIME FOR SAM RAINSY AS PRIME MINISTER.

China Fuels Deadly Illegal Logging Trade

 

TIME Magazine | May 14, 2013

 

Cambodia’s deforestation is the world’s third highest, after Nigeria and Vietnam, according to the latest figures from the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization. China is the biggest importer of timber, and the destination for much of Cambodia’s beleaguered woodland.

How Vietnamese Companies and International Financiers [IFC, Deutsche Bank] are Driving a Land Grabbing Crisis in Cambodia and Laos

Watch GW's 5-minute video

Read the Report



The ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) was installed into power by the Vietnamese military in Jan. 1979 when it invaded Cambodia.


Since, inter alia, the CPP facilitated the K-5 Plan, and has given the Vietnamese military control of national-security-sensitive telecommunications (METFONE, whose parent company is Viettel, owned by the Vietnamese military), the national airlines... Now Vietnam's free reign to destroy its satellite state, Cambodia, wholesale.

 

And these are only some of the things we know about some 33 years later.


- Theary, Phnom Penh, 13 May 2013


Excerpts from the Global Witness May 2013 Executive Summary:


By the end of 2012, 2.6 million hectares of land in Cambodia had been leased, 1.2 million of this for rubber.  Twenty-two percent of this land has been allocated to just five of Cambodia's most powerful tycoons -- simply the latest example of how the country's valuable natural resources have been captured by an elite growing spectacularly rich while one-third of the population [almost 5 million] lives on less than US$0.61 a day.

 

The legal limit is 10,000 hectares per company.

 

2.6 million hectares = 73% of Cambodia's arable land, affecting Cambodians in 12 provinces

US and Europe Should Impose Sanction (e.g. Visa ban) of the Cambodian People's Party and their Family

As vote nears, Cambodia opposition urges sanction threat

AFP, May 11, 2013

 

"There must be a clear warning to the Hun Sen regime that there will not be business as usual following fake elections," Rainsy told AFP in an interview Thursday, saying he was giving the same message to US policymakers.

 

"If Hun Sen pretends to win in a boxing match in which he boxes alone, his victory would be meaningless," Rainsy said.

 

Rainsy said that the main retaliation should be a visa ban on top officials and that he opposed sanctions that would hurt ordinary Cambodians.

BOYCOTT The Village !!!!


Of the 10% tip that is automatically included in the bill, ONLY 5% go to the staff!!!!!!


Simply, this is STEALING. Or, CHEATING, as my friend Bunleng succinctly put it. But then he tried to assure me that all the foreign places do this -- NOT A CONSOLATION.


All of these places are CHEATS and THIEVES and the places should be banned. Everyone who frequents these places should ask whether 100 PERCENT of the tips will go to the staff; if not, the customer should walk out, giving the reason why.


A few years back, Raffles Le Royal encountered a massive strike against it when it stole 100% of the tips from the staff.


No more The Village for me.

Nick Vujicic


Born in 1982 in Melbourne, Australia, without any medical explanation or warning, Nicholas Vujicic came into the world with neither arms nor legs. Imagine the shock his parents felt when they saw their first-born brand new baby boy for the first time, only to find he was what the world would consider imperfect and abnormal. Nick Vujicic Childhood A limbless son was not what nurse Dushka Vujicic, and her husband Pastor Boris Vujicic had been expecting.

 


Nick is coming to speak in Cambodia, an event sponsored by the Ministry of Information.  $2 per ticket.  New Life Fellowship (near Olympic Market) is helping to sell tickets.

 

Click here to watch LIVE FOREVER



 

The film is poignant through and through, but there's one particular moment toward the end where Nick's RECONCILIATION with a school bully in the audience SYMBOLIZES the larger RECONCILIATION of the brokenness of this war-ravaged region of the world -- the pain and devastation not dissimilar for, not un-familar to, us Cambodians.


As a Christian watching this, I cannot help but think that as Satan wreaked havoc using the stain-filled human actors to carry out his destruction in this region of the former Yugoslavia full of what seem to be intractable problems, God was quietly raising a child who is to become the man of His reconciliation, with a power and authority to captivate ALL SIDES, ALL PEOPLES unmatched by any politician, any glamorous Hollywood celebrity, any tycoon philanthropist in their failed attempt to heal the enmity -- a child the world would have thrown away.

 

But it is characteristic of God to use what the world considers weak, poor, and least to bring about His kingdom in this broken world, e.g. Jesus born in animal's smelly, foul-stench, dirty stable.  Not only ancient but modern history is full of such individuals, e.g. ethnic Albanian, Mother Teresa.

 

Related, I am reminded of Joseph's response to his brothers who had sold him, now upon learning of his identity as the ruler of Egypt, only second to the Pharaoh himself, what I called the 50-20 Principle: "You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives" (Genesis 50:20).  And of what Paul wrote in his letter to Christians in Rome: "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose" (Romans 8:28).

 

Another thought I had was that God often doesn't take away the problem, but instead gives us the necessary help to get us through, and to get us through gloriously. He journeys with us in life's difficulty and challenges.  Here, Nick was not just born into any family, but a family with a mom who is a nurse and a dad who is a Christian pastor -- the sufficiency of God's grace as Nick is being molded and shaped and chiseled and refined in the most excruciating manner into the beauty that he is now.

 

Here, I am reminded of the brilliant passage on suffering of St. Augustine in his masterpiece The City of God which I am now re-reading:

 

Wherefore, though good and bad men suffer alike, we must not suppose that there is no difference between the men themselves, because there is no difference in what they both suffer.  For even in the likeness of sufferings, there remains an unlikeness in the sufferers; and though exposed to the same anguish, virtue and vice are not the same thing.  For as the same fire causes gold to glow brightly, and chaff to smoke; and under the same flail the straw is beaten small, while the grain is cleansed; and as the lees are not mixed with the oil, though squeezed out of the vat by the same pressure, so the same violence of affliction proves, purges, clarifies the good, but damns, ruins, exterminates the wicked. And thus it is that in the same affliction the wicked detest God and blaspheme, while the good pray and praise.  So material a difference does it make, not what ills are suffered, but what kind of man suffers them.  For, stirred up with the same movement, mud exhales a horrible stench, and ointment emits a fragrant odor (Book I, Section 8; click to read fuller excerpt).

 

A brilliant teaching by Dr. Rob Norris on SUFFERING of Job that has great resonance and relevance here:


"Resilient Faith"

 

And yet another thought I often have: the glimmer and tinkling in the eyes of those who love Jesus and/or those who are living well (even if in poverty because they live out goodness, kindness, compassion, justice etc.) -- compared to the harsh, steely, mean piercing looks and hardened expression of the rich and powerful in Cambodia -- not at all helped by the heavy make-up or glittering expensive jewelry adorning them (for the "chum-teavs") or the expensive diamond rings, watches, designer suits and other expensive toys (for the "ek-a-doms").

 

I look forward to listening to Nick speak when he is scheduled to be in Phnom Penh at Koh Pich later this month.

Theary C. Seng and the Road Ahead in Cambodia

By Michelle Phipps-Evans

Asian Fortune News, 3 Feb. 2013


Theary C. Seng (Photo: Roland Neveu, Dec. 2009)


The name Theary Chan Seng generates a fervor approaching reverence in the Cambodian community here and abroad. She is the Cambodian-born, American-educated lawyer and civil rights activist who founded the Cambodian Center for Justice & Reconciliation. It is a major component of another organization she serves as founding president, CIVICUS: Center for Cambodian Civic Education. This nonprofit group is dedicated to promoting an enlightened and responsible citizenry committed to democratic principles. It is actively engaged in the practice of democracy and reconciliation in Cambodia and the larger, globalized world.

So who really is Seng, the person? She is a survivor of the Khmer Rouge (KR) regime, and has spent almost two decades advocating for its victims, many of whom were orphaned, widowed, abused or molested—victims who were like Seng herself.

Obama, in Cambodia for a Meeting,

Sidesteps the Ghosts of History

 

International Herald Tribune (Peter Baker, November 20, 2012)


Theary Seng, president of the Association of Khmer Rouge Victims in Cambodia, said, “President Obama should have met with the human rights community and activists challenging the Hun Sen regime, and while then and there, offer a public apology to the Cambodian people for the illegal U.S. bombings, which took the lives of half a million Cambodians and created the conditions for the Khmer Rouge genocide.”

Kissinger in Cambodia:

Protests Greet Obama's Visit

International Herald Tribune / New York Times


PHNOM PENH — Theary Seng was taking aim with precision and anger. The 41-year-old U.S.-trained lawyer and a regular on Cambodia’s crowded protest circuit was about to throw a dart at a poster of former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.


Kissinger is one of 13 politicians and senior Khmer Rouge leaders in a dart game created by Poetic Justice, a nongovernmental organization run by Theary Seng that highlights deficiencies of the special U.N.-backed tribunal judging the Khmer Rouge’s crimes. Each player gets five throws. A bull’s-eye is worth seven points. The highest score wins.


Last Sunday afternoon, Theary Seng and three members of her staff were playing on Phnom Penh’s riverfront opposite the storied Foreign Correspondents’ Club. On this occasion — the fourth time the game has been staged in public — the point was to draw attention to the narrow scope of the Khmer Rouge tribunal ahead of President Barack Obama’s visit for a summit meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

Ex-leader: Khmer Rouge atrocities are 'fairy tale'

AP Newswire, 23 Nov. 2011


"I'm not surprised that Nuon Chea, Khieu Samphan and Ieng Sary continue to deny their crimes as the charges against them of genocide, war crimes are very serious," said Theary Seng, a Cambodian lawyer and human rights activist who lost family members under their regime.


"Even if I am not surprised, I am however disgusted by their lack of remorse for the suffering they caused. They are delusional in their denial in light of the weight of evidence against them - the mounds of skulls and bones, the horrific testimonies from every survivor of cruelty, the magnitude and scope of evil unleashed by them across the whole of Cambodia."

Khmer Rouge Trial Missing a Marquee Defendant

Wall Street Journal, 21 Nov. 2011

“The release of Ieng Thirith is only one reflection of how incredibly late these trials are coming into place,” said Theary Seng, founder of the Cambodian Center for Justice and Reconciliation and herself, too, a victim of the Khmer Rouge regime, having lost her parents and spent five months in prison. She has withdrawn from the tribunal process, and instead put her energy into organizing public games of darts featuring the faces of the Khmer Rouge leaders along Phnom Penh’s riverfront – a “way of release” following victims’ frustrations with the trial process, mixed with “dark humor,” she said.

But the trial - a joint enterprise between the UN and Cambodia - has been heavily criticised. Theary Seng, whose parents were killed by the Khmer Rouge, said putting three people on trial for the deaths of 1.7 million simply wasn't enough. (BBC News, 21 Nov. 2011)

Khmer Rouge survivor Theary Seng told AFP she was "frustrated beyond words" that only Khieu Samphan looked likely to shed light on what happened. "The people want to know who is behind the Khmer Rouge, we want to see and understand the larger picture and we're not going to get that," she said.


From Tragedy to Sham in Cambodia

Asia Times Online, 19 Nov. 2011

In KI-Media

Others have gone further, arguing that the time might be ripe for the UN to pull the plug on the controversy-plagued court altogether. Last week, Theary Seng, a Cambodian-American survivor of the Khmer Rouge regime and a prominent advocate for victims' rights, withdrew her status as a civil party to the court, describing the proceedings as a "complete sham".

She said the UN should threaten to withdraw after setting some clear conditions for its continued participation. By pressing ahead, Seng said, the world body runs the risk of rubber-stamping a flawed process and further embedding cynicism in the Cambodian population.

"I understand the unwieldiness of any large bureaucracy, but at the end of the day it comes down to personalities, and there have been extremely weak personalities," she said. "In this regard, the UN is complicit."
