Public Forum on Prey Lang in Preah Vihear, May 31

Hundreds of people attended the public forum on Prey Lang in Kampong Thom in March 2011.

Parliamentarians will answer questions and discuss the situation and future of  Prey Lang Forest, with local communities, on May 31, starting at 8am, in Preah Vihear (Pal Hal Village in Reak Reay Commune.)   The forum,  co-organized by the Prey Lang Network, CCHR, Ponlork Khmer, and OPKC, is open to the public.  Prey Lang Network members will attend as “avatars.”

A similar public forum in March in Kampong Thom, attracted national attention with the full forum broadcast on CTN as well as on radio.

Look for news and pictures from the forum on Wednesday, June 1.  The forum is expected to be broadcast on several radio stations later in the week. Stay tuned for details.

The forum sparked lively debate and attracted considerable media coverage.
