Cambodian garment workers are demanding a double in their monthly minimum wage to $160 US. The current government is also feeling the heat as the opposition party has supported the strikers. After yesterday’s arrests, police opened fire with live ammunition on strikers blocking a highway south of Phnom Penh.

The local human rights group LICADHO also said in a statement that at least four civilians were shot dead and 21 injured in what it described as “the worst state violence against civilians to hit Cambodia in 15 years….No efforts have been made to prevent death and serious injury.”
