This week, the main opposition party in Cambodia, the Cambodia National Rescue Party, was dissolved by that country’s High Court. This move has effectively ensured that the current Government, headed by Hun Sen, will win next year’s elections. This ruling comes on the back of previous arrests and repression of opposition activists as well as the closure of independent media outlets such as radio. Given the oppressive situation that Cambodian workers already face (see here, here and here), the latest crackdown will only worsen the ability for workers to organise to improve their working conditions.
