Peace: Free Yorm Bopha

Amnesty_InternationalAmnesty International

This may be our last best chance to free Yorm Bopha. She is a powerful voice for the rights of the Boeung Kak Lake community in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where thousands of people have been forcibly evicted since 2007. The Cambodian government has tried to silence her, convicting her of fabricated charges as a result of her peaceful activism defending the rights to housing and freedom of expression. This Friday, November 22, she has an appeal hearing before the country’s Supreme Court, which could be her last chance for release. Time is short — send a message to ask Cambodian officials to release Yorm!
