The Forgotten Cambodia

The Forgotten Cambodia


Every month in Cambodia 200 people lose limbs due to mines. And are left crippled, suffering and unable to work or enjoy life. Countless others die.

Cambodia is in complete poverty. Its rice industry was destroyed by the Americans using Agent Orange. Plus all the fields are full of mines and un exploded bombs. Lets not forget all those that have died or have illnesses caused by agent orange.

Cambodia is basically a swamp, which was ideal for growing rice. Now Cambodia does not have anyway of using its land for food or anything else.

Cambodians are trapped in poverty. They can never come out of it. Cambodians do not even have the resources necessary to leave.

Cambodia has been permanently destroyed.

It is a forgotten land. As usual, American media would rather forget than remember what America has done to this country and its people.

John Pilger vividly reveals the brutality and murderous political ambitions of the Pol Pot / Khmer Rouge totalitarian regime which bought genocide and despair to the people of Cambodia while neighboring countries, including Australia, shamefully ignored the immense human suffering and unspeakable crimes that bloodied this once beautiful country..

Shocking and heart-rending secret footage takes us into the heart of Cambodia’s child sex trade. We see girls as young as ten offered for sex, and uncover a web of corruption that shows little remorse.

Chanting ‘yum yum’, the slang for oral sex, girls clamour for attention in a back streets brothel. They are ten years old. “Cambodian men believe that having sex with virgins boosts their sexual appetite, their strength, their integrity,” explains Mu Sochua, Minister for Women’s Affairs. Sunremita was tricked by her mother into prostitution to make money for her sick relatives. But the proliferation of child prostitutes is down to more than just poverty — rife corruption also compounds the problem. In Svey Pak, police storm a brothel. A few girls are collected, but pimps and owners are left in peace. “For every single hour that [the brothels] operate the police are paid to let them,” states Sochua. Even when paedophiles are arrested, it seems easy to escape justice. Photos of padlocks locked around the genitals of a 13-year old boy clearly show sexual abuse. But the French national accused walked away from court free, despite photos and the testimony of ten boys. Pol Pot tried deliberately to destroy the family; greed and corruption will hopefully not finish the job.

  1. I agree with whay t you say here . I guess if you feel like this you must have been to Cambodia . I am trying to raise awareness of the plight of Cambodians and made the slideshow below which id too long. I want to make another about what poverty means in Cambodia but to keep it very short and too the point. I don’t suppose you have any good photos of Cambodia to show the poverty there that I could use obviously I’d credit themmto you.
