CAMBODIA

This post aims to pay homage to those who risk their lives and leave everything behind – including their own families – to defend their most basic rights. A summary of some of the 2012 Human & Land rights related events in Cambodia – part of my long term project on land rights and housing conditions.

Through this project, I’ve had the opportunity to meet the most amazing and inspiring people. I have also had the chance to witness staggering moments of joy, despair and frustration.

I truly hope 2013 brings some better news for those millions of people around the world whose basic rights have been undermined.

Happy 2013
