I was reminded that 4 years have passed since the violent Dey Krahom eviction (see
) took place here in Phnom Penh. Has anything changed since? At Dey Krahom things for sure are not different: since the eviction the land still stands empty, so I guess the speculation didn't really work out as planned for the 7NG company which kicked the families out. As for the evictions, a common characteristic to developing nations, they still take place elsewhere in Cambodia (see
) in the same cynical and greedy way. There is one emerging difference though: some communities in Cambodia are organising their resistance more effectively. Boeung Kak Lake is one example, the Prey Lang forest community another.
