‘Domradio’ now reported about an innocent Cambodian man who – of course against his own will – was sold by some ‘corrupt public officials from the neighborhood’ to a Cambodian palm oil plantation. There he was held captive and forced to do hard farm work while the corrupt public officials got paid by the plantation owner just like you would pay for a new draft horse someone sold to you. No police officer came to find and free him, so he freed himself. Later he was invited by the Roman-Catholic church to speak in front of a congress. His speech meanwhile started a discussion about the origins of the goods bought by the Roman-Catholic church of Australia. The dioceses there now do some research to find out if their goods actually were produced by forced labor or child-labor, too.

‘Tagesschau’ says that according to statistics financed by a Cambodian labor union the following things are fact:
>16% of all women working in Cambodia’s textile industry are underweight.
>43% of these seamstresses suffer from anemia.
>About 1/3 of Cambodia’s seamstresses lack at least one essential vitamin in their blood.
>Most women they asked for these studies confirmed that they fainted at least once in their work life as the textile industry demands so much of them under such awful conditions.

‘Marktcheck’ says that rice as it’s produced by hundreds of children (child-labor) in Myanmar, Cambodia, India, Uganda, Brazil, Vietnam, Mali and others contains risky amounts of arsenic. Before claiming this ‘Marktcheck’ examined rice sold by several independent enterprises. Plus this informative TV-show says that people should eat potatoes or corn rather than rice as eating rice is more likely to cause overweight than the aforementioned types of food.

‘Domradio’ also talked about the elections in Cambodia last Sunday. They say that there were strict controls and anybody who did not vote got arrested. Also the government took away the licence from radio stations that criticized Hun Sen. Also already last year the only strong opposing party was declared illegal.

Re-upload: I’m very hopeful that the organisations the two websites “http://www.aidforafrica.org/donate/” and “http://www.humanewildlife.org/cercopan.html” belong to, will be able to make a change for the better. They also give you the possibility of getting involved in the preservation of this forest.
